Subject: Re: [docbook] ackno only in article?

The Article element was added in DocBook 2.1 (circa 1994) and the
Ackno element was introduced with Article, as part of its original
content model. There was already a Book element, but I would
speculate that at the time, nobody thought about going back and
adding Ackno to the Book content model. If you think it should be
in there, file an RFE.

In the mean time (or instead), I think just doing
<preface><title>Acknowledgements</title>... should work OK. (You
have multiple Prefaces in a Book).
