I agree. In one draft I have: <section><title>Quick Start</title> <section><title>Example</title> <screen><prompt>$</prompt> <userinput><command>saxon7_5</command> <option>-o</option> <filename>index.xhtml</filename> <filename>yourbook.dbx</filename> <filename>/joocs/chunking_express.xslt</filename></userinput></screen> </section> </section> Since it's just an example commandline/screen, I don't use the replaceable element. How would others mark this up? How could I avoid this very long line? Tobi -- http://www.pinkjuice.com/
