/ Joachim Ziegler <zieg@algorilla.de> was heard to say: | Now I want to change to DocBook (as Docbook is a major subject in this course | and as the stylesheets are much more sophisticated than mine). I really miss | an exercise-tag, but maybe that's not what DocBook was designed for.

Books about software development would seem to be in scope, and books with exercises and other course material seem entirely reasonable.

Let's explore the design space a little bit...

So far, we have requests for markup for exercises. Is other markup required, or is DocBook perfect except that it lacks and <exercise> element?

What are the functional requirements for the exercise element? How do you want to be able to style it?

Be seeing you, norm
