Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: QandA: nesting questions

/ Horacio MG <homega@ciberia.es> was heard to say:
|   <!DOCTYPE BOOK PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook V3.1//EN" [
|   ... some entities ...
|   <!ENTITY intro SYSTEM "intro.sgm">
|   <!ENTITY resources SYSTEM "resources.sgm">
|   ]>
| <book>
| <bookinfo>
| <graphic format="ps" align="center" fileref="../images/image"></graphic>
| <!-- problems with graphic are:
| 1) I can't make it show above the title or to the left of the title
| centering the title.  Is this possible?

What stylesheets are you using, DSSSL or XSL?

| 2) db2html produces an html output with the graphic included (in
| book1.html: SRC="../images/image.gif"), wheras db2ps (or db2pdf) don't
| include the graphic at all (in faq.tex: {../images/image.eps}).  Now,
| this is weird as images/image is a file converted to ps, so how can I
| see with html an inexistant file?  and how can I make the ps graphic
| show on ps or pdf without fiddling with the latex source?

If I understand your question, it boils down to what you said you want
on the title page. Look at 

(define (book-titlepage-recto-elements)
  (list (normalize "title") 
	(normalize "subtitle") 
	(normalize "graphic") 
	(normalize "mediaobject")
	(normalize "corpauthor") 
	(normalize "authorgroup") 
	(normalize "author") 
	(normalize "editor")))

In your print and HTML stylesheets.

| <!-- so far so good, except for the numbering scheme which I'll comment
| at the end.  But now I need to nest some Q&As -->
| <qandaentry>
| <question>...</question>
| <answer>...</answer>
| <!-- and the next Q&As I want them to be subquestion within the previous
| question, so I don't close the </qandaentrytag until (*), and instead
| I open a <qandadivtag -->

You can't do that. If you want a Q&A inside a question or answer, you'll
have to start a new QandASet.

| jade:../resourcex.sgm:332:21:E: document type does not allow element
| "QANDADIV" here
| which I assume means that I should be using <article class="faq">
| instead of <book>, but that gives me the same error and doesn't allow me
| to have the html output nicely split as with <book-->

Nope, it's not related to that at all.

| how can I have Q&As in chapter 2 (and subsequent chaps) numbered as 2.x,
| and how can I have nested q&a's with the numbering scheme:
| [chapter].[Q&A].1, [chapter].[Q&A].2, ...  ??

Set (define %qanda-inherit-numeration% #t)

                                        Be seeing you,
