Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: What are the semantics of list number continuation?
/ Terry Allen <email@example.com> was heard to say: | Too much caffeine? Huh!? | and "but is not an ancestor" fails when you have a lists 3 | deep within a top-level list that has a preceding sublist 2 deep: [renumbering] | A | B | A' | B' | C | A'' I meant for but-not-an-ancestor to cover the following case: B' can continue B, but not A'. Likewise, C can continue B but not B' or A'. A'' continues C (IMHO). | I agree we didn't define the semantics as tightly in prose | as we might, but I'm hard pressed to see what reasonable | alternative there is to the straightforward interpretation. Considering that we seem to have completely different notions of what the straightforward interpretation is (or we're utterly failing to communicate), I can't agree. Cheers, norm -- Norman Walsh <firstname.lastname@example.org> | Whatever you may be sure of, be http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/ | sure of this: that you are Member, DocBook Editorial Board | dreadfully like other | people.--James Russell Lowell
