Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: line numbering

/ George Kraft <gk4@us.ibm.com> was heard to say:
| Is there a way to line number a Docbook document?   This is needed for a
| document review.

Well, this is technically a stylesheet or presentation issue, but
practically speaking I don't know of any formatter that can do
it. (Er, the Arbortext formatter might be able to...)

| Also, is there a way to conditionally include rationale statements into
| a Docbook document?    Some readers would like to know the rationale
| behind certain subjects.

Can you describe the context in which you want to do this?

I mean you could just use paragraphs:

<para role="rationale">...</para>

And conditionally print those with a sytlesheet.

                                        Be seeing you,
