Subject: RE: DOCBOOK: how about an inline version of <note>

Yes, organize your text to fit in a "note" 
as block element ;-)

I would have thought that drawing a reader's attention
to inline parts is done using "emphasis". Either that
or use "phrase" with "role='note'" or something.
I really don't think we want inline admonitions.
do we (rat-tail of "important", "warning" etc....)?

One man's humble opinion..
