Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: <filename>'s transition to smallcptr.char.mix, 3.x -> 4.x

/ Nik Clayton <nik@nothing-going-on.demon.co.uk> was heard to say:
| This means that constructs such as 
|     <para>Your ssh key pair will be placed in the
|       <filename><envar>$HOME</envar>/.ssh</filename> directory.</para>
| which were valid in 3.x are no longer valid.
| Is there a recommended alternative way to mark up this sort of text?
| Wanting to mark up the environment variable, while still indicating it's
| part of a filename seems fairly natural to me.

This may be evidence that we reduced the content model of filename (and
perhaps other elements) too far. Is there anything else that should
be allowed?

                                        Be seeing you,
