Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: Re: Stylesheet RFC -- "description" meta tag in html

| I don't even know if you have to go this far.  Wouldn't this require a
| change to the Docbook DTD?  I can't decide if this is necessary or

Right, that's the point of the 'role'. But this wouldn't require any
changes to the DTD. The 'role' attribute is a common attribute, and 
simpara is allowed in abstract.

| You have interaction with chunking too.  Sectional elements can have
| abstract, can't they?  so it would be nice to take the ancestor's
| abstract, or fallback to <bookinfo> or whatever.

Yes, it'll be a little tricky finding the "right" abstract.
