Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: Keywords

/ Ian Moor <iwm@doc.ic.ac.uk> was heard to say:
| >I am trying to mark-up a document that is about a computer language.
| I have wondered about language keywords, for example in chapter 2 of the
| definitive guide "the most frequently used keywords are PUBLIC, SYSTEM, ..."
| However the docbook element keyword  is meant for describing a document.
| The nearest element seems to be token.

Yes, "keyword" describes the metadata that is a keyword, not computer
language keywords. I'd likely use <literal>, <symbol>, or <token> with
a role attribute.
