Subject: RE: [docbook] Tags to allow re-use of content from other documents

Hi Camille,

If I correctly understand what profiling is I don't think it is the
solution. Profiling offers the opportunity to tag your document so that a
condition can be passed in such that a decision can be made about what bits
are sent to the output.

We don't need the ability to specify a condition as we know we want all the
bits of a (source) document in a particular position in another document.

I can see that elements like <link> and <xref> have an endterm attribute
which allows the specification of what text is used for the link/reference
and wondered if there was an equivilent element which could grab the
contents of elements in other documents e.g. text tagged as <para>. Some
sort of <olink> equivilent that can capture text from another document

maybe all you need is profiling?

That question would go to docbook-apps list then.
