Forgot one pretty important thing - input from anyone welcome ...

- The separation into intro and body text. Atompub doesn't really have
any support for this. It does have a "content" and a "summary" element,
but those aren't really the same: "content" is the article's (or
whatever) entire content and "summary" is just that - a separate
description of "content".

In CVS, we're currently using "summary" for the introtext only if
there's both a body and an introtext - but that's wrong and already
causes problems with some clients (e.g. appfs).

So the only possible solution is to stick both intro and body text into
"content" and use some special markup there to tell them apart. But what?


- <div style="introtext"> and <div style="bodytext">
- a pseudo-tag to indicate where the bodytext starts, e.g. [body]
- use [page_break] - first occurence defines the start of the bodytext

Other ideas?

bye, Dirk
