Subject: DOCBOOK: Re: Content model of <option> too restrictive

/ Peter Eisentraut <peter_e@gmx.net> was heard to say:
| This doesn't work anymore, because <optional> is no longer allowed in
| <option>.  I figured, maybe <option> was intended to be used only for the
| actual option names (e.g., <option>--foo</option>), but then why is
| <replaceable> allowed?

The DocBook TC decided it had been overzealous in reducing the content model
of several elements (option among them). DocBook 4.2 will have the broader
content model again. DocBook 4.2 beta 2 should be out next week.

                                        Be seeing you,
