Because I'm generating HTML from DocBook, I'm getting slightly
different markup (which is not surprising). Here's what I get for an
example, for example:

<div class="example-wrapper" id="ex1">
<div class="title">Example&#160;1.&#160;A simple, linear
XInclude/Validate pipeline</div>
<div class="example">
<div class="programlisting">
<pre><code>
&lt;p:declare-step xmlns:p="http://www.w3.org/ns/xproc"
                name="xinclude-and-validate"
                version="1.0"&gt;
...
</code></pre>
</div>
</div>
</div>
</div>

I think I prefer my markup, the extra levels of wrapper provide
flexibility (even if the class names are a bit long).

But the proposed conventions don't need the additional flexibility, so
I can't decide if I should craft CSS that implements the same
conventions using my markup, or change what I generate to match what
the standard CSS expects.

Thoughts?

                                          norm
