Norm Walsh is quick on the turnaround! Please give the latest candidate release of DocBook v5 a test drive and report any issues. You can download the schemas here: http://docbook.org/xml/5.0CR3/. There is also a set of stylesheets released that support v5.0 as well. You can find them here:
I was a bit of a "problem child" with my RFEs that are now included:
- RFE 1588693: Added an <acknowledgements> element, peer to <dedication>, replacing <ackno> which had only been available at the end of <article>.
- allow <info> in HTML tables.
You can specifically blame me for these. :-) I do think they will be quite useful enhancements.
