The Committee approved. ACTION: Norm to add result element to DocBook 5.1 schema. 3491860 license tag 3593209 Add see/seealso under This was discussed in the Publisher's subcommittee, but they wanted an example. ACTION: Dick to prepare an example of "see under" index entries. 3599576 'info' wrapper element for processing titlepage elements Dick reported that the submittor wanted to conditionalize a group of info elements, rather than a raft of individual elements. Larry suggested that a general wrapper had no semantic meaning, and Bob suggested that the semantics come from the role or condition attributes added to it. The TC has rejected general wrapper elements in the past because they greatly complicate content models, and the same effect can be obtained by conditionalizing individual elements, with less convenience. Dick suggested adding an element for copyright page information as an alternative to info. Larry proposed an alternative approach: allow more than one info element. Common info elements would be in an unconditionalized info element, and other conditionalized info elements would supplement it. ACTION: Dick to propose the multiple info approach to the submittor.
