Subject: Re: [docbook-tc] personblurb in address?

Here's my situation, IHAC that is standardizing on DocBook 4.5 and has a 
variety of publications. Most are very straightforward, but they would 
also like to publish their Employee Directory using DocBook. That means 
for each entry, there will be a name, address, phone, email, etc.

They would also like to put in a biography and/or job description. This 
is where I thought personblurb would make the most sense, so the 
directory would look something like:
<title>Employee Directory</title>
<title>Communications Division</title>
      <orgname>Flatirons Solutions</orgname>
    <street>4747 Table Mesa Drive, Suite 200</street>
    <city>Boulder</city> <state>CO</state> <postcode>80305</postcode>
    <authorblurb><para>Scott likes DocBook. He's a certifiable DocBook 
geek, and a member of  the OASIS TC.</para></authorblurb>

Best regards,


P.S., Plaxo is just a service I use. I got tired of maintining my 
addressbook in multiple places, and it syncs to Outlook and Thunderbird.
