It seems Nordstedts "Stora Engelsk-Svenska Ordbok" disagree here. I wonder
why your documents exlicitly says otherwise. Nordstedts is the only authorative
reference I have at the moment.

"Försiktigt" is probably ok also. Docbook makes no assertions about the 
difference between warning and caution so maybe both can be translated as "Varning" (but
it's easier to debug if different texts come out. It is a little strange that DocBook has two
words and do not assign stronger semantics. (http://www.docbook.org/tdg/en/html/warning.html)

> Warning -> Varning
