Subject: RE: DOCBOOK: sect1 in preface


It is most unusual to xref an "informal" object. Standard publishing
practice is to place any object that has references to it in a "formal"
container. For example, if you need to reference a table, use <table> and
not <informaltable>. If you want to reference a graphic or other multimedia
object, place it in a <figure> rather than placing the <graphic> or whatever
directly inline.

Even if you are referencing lots of objects, I still recommend putting them
in formal containers for two reasons:

1. You can reference them ;-)

2. If you need to reference them, they should be important enough to warrant
a caption or title.

And can't a <informalfigure> be used instead of <figure>? I don't want
to supply a title for every figure I use an <xref> to.
