Subject: Re: [docbook] Question about qandaentry

Could you please clarify what you mean by "linking" a
qandaentry into more than one qandadiv?  I think of
linking as a cross reference.  But I think you mean
you want to author the entry in one place and repeat
it entirely in another place.  Is that what you need?
