Subject: RE: DocBook Technical Committee Meeting Agenda: 11 April 2018

With regard to 5.d, I posted a summary of the suggested solution:

Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you on this.

After discussing this issue and realizing that there are similar requirements for examples and other formal elements, the TC is proposing adding a formalgroup element that would allow a set of children, all of the same type of formal element without introducing additional complexity in the schema for the formal elements to handle not permitting content at one level but permitting it at another level. It also makes the intention of the structure clearer. This would allow for something like:


    <title>More Still</title>














And also permit:

  <formalgroup align="center" columns="2" type="horiz">

    <title>Testing Formal Group</title>



      <mathphrase>5 + 2</mathphrase>




      <mathphrase>5 -2</mathphrase>



and other similar constructs for other formal elements. A type attribute similar to that used for simple lists would allow specifying horizontal or vertical and would combine with a column attribute to provide simple control of the representation with an align attribute to control simple alignment of the group on the page. It would also be possible to specify a floatstyle attribute to reference more complex CSS-bindings for the rendered elements.

To which he responded:


That would be so much better than my proposal!


Still working on 5.a.
