Subject: Re: [docbook] Re: author initials in bibliography entries

yes, it's odd. The XML input uses a "Initials" element but I think your suggestion is more accurate.

Thank you!

In retorspect, that does seem…odd.

<biblioentry xml:id="CR1">

But so does that. I’d expect the “author initials” of P. Abad to be “PA”
or something. That’s really just an abbreviated first name.

I wonder if <firstname><abbrev>P.</abbrev></firstname> captures the semantics
better. Not that I especially like it, but…
