Subject: Re: [docbook-tc] Fw: [docbook] Marking up an article in a bibliography

Hi Peter,

The info element replaced articleinfo (and all of the XYZinfo elements) when the standard went to DB 5.0.

However, even in 4.x, title inside articleinfo still meant the title of the article, not the title of the journal the article came from. So, if I understand correctly that you put the title of the article in a title element outside articleinfo and the title of the journal in a title element inside articleinfo, then even in 4.x this was not the best way to indicate the journal title. And in DB 5.0 having title in both places is a syntax error; you can only have one title, though it can be either inside or outside the info element.

Here's what I would do instead:

<title>Article Title</title> <!-- the title could be inside or outside the <info> element -->
  <bibliomset relation="journal">
	<title>Journal of Cool Stuff</title>
	<volumenum>2</volumenum> .... <!-- all the usual bibliographic stuff -->

The bibliomset element is used for "related bibliographic information," which seems to be the context you're looking for here. And with bibliomset you also have a lot of other bibliographic elements that you can use in addition to the title.
