Re: [docbook] need coding for "Caps/smallcaps" and "bolditalic" text

I guess the question is  more how to tag the document so that the
stylesheets will produce the desired result. While I agree with you that
style is not one of Docbook's concerns it should be straight forward to tag
elements so that the stylesheets produce the desired result and this is not
always straightforward.
