DocBook element lookup for DocBook:The Definitive Guide

I usually use the quick bookmarks (see my earlier blog entry) to take me to the element reference in Norm Walsh's "DocBook:The Definitive Guide". Thanks to Michael Smith and techntonik, there is a new way to look up DocBook elements in TDG. Go to http://farplugins.sourceforge.net/test/docbook/index.php to try it out. They are looking for a permanent home for this script. Any takers?

I really like the suggested elements, when you first start typing your search. Try typing "ref" and it will give you a list of all the DocBook elements starting with "ref" (refclass, refdescriptor, refentry, refentryinfo, refentrytitle, reference, referenceinfo, refmeta, refmiscinfo, refname). Try it, you'll like it!

Update: Michael Smith has copied the code to http://docbook.sourceforge.net/element/, which should be a more permanent home than the farplugins page...

DocBook.org seems like a logical place to put it ;-)

Agreed! One stop shopping, too :-)
