Subject: Re: [docbook] Recursive use of elements <option> and <optional>

Hi Jürgen,


In db4 it was possible to use <option> and <optional> recusively: <option> within <option> or <option> within <optional> and vice versa. This makes sense as it reflects the real situation of computer languages. In db5 this is no longer valid. As long as there is no other technique to express such computer language situations we need the recursivity as it was defined in db4.

We had a similar experience with wanting to nest <option/> in

For us, this is not a life-and-death issue, as you can usually easily
see which command an option belongs to. Still, to get a unified look
in this situation, we will need some stylesheet magic there.
