Subject: Re: [docbook] How to force a linebreak inside a <command> tag?

<command> is expected to be formatted inline; shouldn't you use a pre- 
formatted environment such as a <programlisting> or a <screen>? Here  
is what I have used, which is rendered to HTML and PDF (via a custom  
stylesheet to TeXML and XeTeX)

<programlisting>Feb 10 18:32:22 <replaceable>hostname</replaceable>  
sshd[<replaceable>pid</replaceable>]: Accepted publickey for  
<replaceable>username</replaceable> from <keycap>↩</keycap>
<replaceable>source-ip</replaceable> port <replaceable>source-port</ 
replaceable> ssh2</programlisting>

In case you can't see it, the thing inside the <keycap> is a LEFTWARDS  
ARROW WITH HOOK, or U+21A9. I've misappropriated <keycap> here because  
the font I use for <keycap> has all the symbols I need (XeTeX doesn't  
have a fall-back font selection mechanism... grrr)
