Re: [docbook] Suggestion needed...

Hello Giuseppe,

I think our way is ok. At least I would do the same.

What you have done was to create a customisation layer.

Hi all,

In our corporate documents, we need to automatically include
our standard legal notice, company info, logo etc.

I accomplished that by creating a new DTD file to be used instead
of the standard DocBook one. This new DTD file looks like this:

<!ENTITY % docbook PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.2//EN"
<!ENTITY % l10n PUBLIC "-//AGAMURA//ENTITIES QuXo Localization
<!ENTITY % copyright PUBLIC "-//AGAMURA//ENTITIES QuXo Copyright
<!ENTITY % corpdata PUBLIC "-//AGAMURA//ENTITIES QuXo Corporation Data


As you can see, it just includes the standard DocBook DTD and then
adds some additional entities...

For example, %copyright; contains the legal notice and assert,
%corpdata; contains long and short company name, web site, etc...

Well, I think this is the wrong place where to place entities like
these. They should be placed somewhere else and then accessed by
our customized DocBook stylesheets.

What do you think about that? What do you suggest instead?
