Subject: Re: How to handle lost functionality regarding the toc element and lot element in DocBook 5

/ "Rowland, Larry" <larry.rowland@hp.com> was heard to say:
| as a child of chapter or appendix to trigger the ToC generation.  It
| would be desirable to preserve this capability in the new version of
| DocBook.


| The writeup for DocBook 5.0 says <tocdiv>  replaces the functionality of
| <lot>, but it was not clear how this would work.

I think that's a small error in the howto. It'd be clearer to say that
"toc" replaces "lot".

| If eliminating <lot> is desirable, perhaps we could use an empty ToC
| with a class attribute or something similar.

Yep. And you can do that today :-) DocBook 5.0 allows an empty <toc/>.

                                        Be seeing you,

Norman Walsh <ndw@nwalsh.com>      | Everything should be made as
http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/ | simple as possible, but no simpler.
