Set ::= ((Title,Subtitle?,TitleAbbrev?)?, SetInfo?,ToC?, (Book)+, SetIndex?)
The start-tag is required for this element. The end-tag is optional, if your SGML declaration allows minimization.
A Set is a collection of Books. Placing multiple Books in a Set, as opposed to publishing each of them separately, has the advantage that ID/IDREF links can then be used across all books.
Set is the very top of the DocBook structural hierarchy. There's nothing that contains a Set.
Formatted as a displayed block. A Set may generate additional front and back matter (tables of contents and SetIndexs, for example) around the Books it contains.
The following elements occur in Set: Book, SetIndex, SetInfo, Subtitle, Title, TitleAbbrev, ToC.
FPI holds the Formal Public Identifier for the Set.
Status identifies the editorial or publication status of the Set.
Publication status might be used to control formatting (for example, printing a "draft" watermark on drafts) or processing (perhaps a document with a status of "final" should not include any components that are not final).
