Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: version control

/ Jonathan Riddell <jr050@jriddell.org> was heard to say:
| I have a book which has 1995, 1996 etc editions and it would be good to
| keep these editions in the one file, with the text from one edition
| outputted at any one time.
| Is there an easy way of doing this?

Easy? Probably not. But it could conceivably be done with the
effectivity markup:

  <para revision="1995">...</para>
  <para revision="1996">...</para>
  <para>Some common text <phrase revision="1995">foo</phrase><phrase

But a version control system like CVS is probably a better answer.

                                        Be seeing you,
