Hi Dick,

Thanks for that feedback, I had been looking at:


but I am happy to just use DocBook 5.0 so I'll take more care to avoid
the older versions of these pages.

Would you know if the XSL scripts (I'm using the docbook-xsl package on
Debian, v1.78.1+dfsg-1) is supposed to render this element?  In the link
you provided, it says "does not automatically generate a link to the URI
it identifies" and I was hoping to find some way to make the author's
name appear as a hyperlink.
