Subject: Re: [docbook] span like thing ?

The automatic propagation of role values into class attributes only applies to four 
elements: emphasis, entry, para, and phrase. For other elements like markup, you can 
customize the class attribute generated for it with a small customization as described 


The mode="class.value" feature was added in version 1.73 of the stylesheets and gives 
you control of your class attribute values.
