Subject: Re: [docbook] authorinitials in authorgroup

Hi Henrik,

That's a nice application. I think the answer to your question is that allowing authorinitials would *require* an application to resolve them, and the DocBook standard is not written to require such applications. If I had to write stock Docbook for it, I would use:

ÂÂÂ <othername role="initials">ABC</othername>

It is longer, but achieves the same purpose.

Of course, you can always customize the schema for your purposes, as it is written to be easily customized. Norm Walsh wrote a section in DocBook: The Definitive Guide for this purpose:

Is there any reason why authorinitials isnât allowed in authorgroup?

My intention is to allow our editors to insert authorinitials, check these against a database using Schematron and in a process substitute the authorinitials with a proper constructed author element using data from the same database.
