Subject: Re: [docbook] A bibliographical mark-up question

Hi Nic,
DocBook (since version 4.2) supports Dublin Core metadata with elements like 
biblioid, bibliocoverage, bibliorelation, and bibliosource.  I would think 
bibliorelation would suit your information.  See:


In the biblioentry for the article, include something like this:

<bibliorelation type="ispartof" class="other" 

This establishes the relationship connecting the article to the book.  The 
stylesheets simply output this element, though, so you might want to 
customize its template to better express the relationship in the output.

Subject: [docbook] A bibliographical mark-up question

Hi all

I've been away from DocBook for well over a year now and I've been asked a 
question that has me slightly stumped. So, I'm going to have to ask the 
experts :)

A client has a book that is being converted into XML using DocBook. The book 
includes a few entries in the bibliography of the form "ArticleName, in 
BookName". What would be the best way to mark this up so that ArticleName 
and BookName are stored in separate elements but that the relationship is 
represented clearly?
