Subject: Re: [docbook] bookinfo author blog URLs

Hi Daniel,

In DocBook 5.x, the <author> element allows <uri> as a sub-element. The <uri> element has a type attribute, which doesn't have a mandated value, but it is there to let you define the type of uri, and there are some suggestions in the Definitive Guide: for example weblog, webpage, etc.

Here is a link to that page for DocBook 5.0: http://docbook.org/tdg5/en/html/author.html

In DocBook 4.x, <author> doesn't have the <uri> element, so you probably need to hijack another element. You might try <authorblurb>, which allows <para> or <simpara> as child elements. Starting with DocBook 4.3, either <para> or <simpara> will allow <uri> as a child element.

I hope that helps.
