Subject: Re: [docbook] <revhistory> general content

You could try putting the revhistory inside some other element that also contains the general info.  I think revhistory has several possible parents.  Then customize the revhistory template to check its parent, maybe using a role attribute on the parent.

Subject: [docbook] <revhistory> general content

I'm looking for some ideas on how best to handle a markup conundrum.


I am using DocBook 4.5. I would like to be able to include content inside <revhistory> that is not specific to any one revision. (We want to provide some general information about how to read the revision history.)


I would prefer to work strictly within the DocBook 4.5 content model and not add custom elements. However, the DocBook 4.5 content model does not allow for anything inside <revhistory> other than <revision> elements.


Does anyone see a semantically appropriate way to do what I want without extending the content model?
