Name

seglistitem — A list item in a segmented list

Synopsis

seglistitem ::= seg+

Additional constraints

  • The number of seg elements must be the same as the number of segtitle elements in the parent segmentedlist.

Description

A segmentedlist consists of a set of headings (segtitles) and a list of parallel sets of elements. Each set of elements is stored in a seglistitem.

Processing expectations

Segmented lists can be formatted in a number of ways. Two popular formats are tabular and as a list of repeated headings and elements. In a tabular presentation, each seglistitem is a row in the table. In the list presentation, each seglistitem contains a block of heading/element pairs.

DocBook cannot detect errors caused by too many or too few segs in a seglistitem. You will have to rely on external processes to find those errors.

Examples

See segmentedlist for an example that uses this element.
