Subject: Re: [docbook] Explicit tab and if-neccessary-pagebreaks?
Well, sbr isn't very useful outside of a command synopsis, which is the only place where it is allowed by the DTD. There is no general line break element in DocBook, but you could use a literallayout element which respects line breaks. Tabstop is a feature that is not defined in the XSL-FO standard. Tab characters are converted to white space, which is generally collapsed to a single space character when there is more than one. DocBook XML and XML in general are designed to separate content from formatting. The formatting should be supplied by the stylesheet. Indents are formatting and would not normally be encoded in the DocBook XML That said, there are exceptions such as tables that let you specify column widths and frame styles. Perhaps an example of what you are trying to do would help. Regarding keeping something together, that is an XSL stylesheet feature, using a property keep-together.within-page="always" on the fo:block containing the material. The DocBook stylesheet uses such a keep on formal objects such as table, example, and figure.
