Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: how to represent key sequence "Ctrl Alt Fn"??

Not really.  An entity can use another entity, but a reference to an
entity cannot include a parameter.  You could have a Perl or shell
script that kicked out &ctrl.alt.f1; &ctrl.alt.f2; ... entities, or
you could attack it on the style side.  Could create a custom tag
which takes and arg (functionnum) and then handle display in the DSSSL
or XSL.

Hmm, like what? You might wanna see what the freeBSD folks are doing.
Sniff around in http://www.FreeBSD.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/doc/share/sgml/
