Subject: Re: [docbook] Punctuation after <surname>in <bibliomixed>?

Hi Brad,
Yes, you can control that.  See this section in my book:

Subject: [docbook] Punctuation after <surname>in <bibliomixed>?

We are using bibliomixed as the standard container for all reference items within a collection of humanities and social science texts.

The intent was to (effectively) take the text string as it appears in the print source and then apply the markup, leaving all the punctuation in situ as it appeared in print. So, starting with this:

Adamson, Sylvia, ‘The Literary Language’, in Suzanne Romaine (ed.), The Cambridge History of the English Language: Volume 4, 1776–1997 (Cambridge, 1999), pp. 589–692

We apply markup:

<bibliomixed><bibliomset relation="article"><author><personname>Adamson, Sylvia</personname></author>, ‘<title>The Literary Language</title>’</bibliomset>, in <bibliomset relation="book"><editor><personname>Suzanne Romaine</personname></editor> (ed.), <title><emphasis role="italic">The Cambridge History of the English Language: Volume 4, 1776–1997</emphasis></title> (<address><city>Cambridge</city></address>, <pubdate>1999</pubdate>)</bibliomset>, pp. <pagenums>589–692</pagenums></bibliomixed>

This is fine, BUT I really want to have <firstname> and <surname> within the personname, yet can't because of that comma between Adamson and Sylvia.

Is there a way around this, other than locally changing the content model for personname?

Thanks very much
