Subject: Re: Announce: DocBook V5.0b1

/ Sam Steingold <sds@gnu.org> was heard to say:
| I am not using xinclude anyway, I have been using SYSTEM entities, and
| it appears that I can keep using them.

Yes, you can. You can do so even if you don't want to rely on the
DTD for V5.0. This is perfectly well-formed XML:

<!DOCTYPE book [
<!ENTITY ...>
<book xmlns="http://docbook.org/ns/docbook";>

| <2> what do I use instead of <structfield> to mark up a slot (field) in
|     a structure or class?

I'd proably use varname, maybe with a role. But maybe the right thing
to do is put structname and structfield back. Of all the things we
cut, that's the one that probably is the least well-justified.

                                        Be seeing you,
