Description

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.

Processing expectations

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.

Children

The following elements occur in Set: Book, SetIndex, SetInfo, Subtitle, Title, TitleAbbrev, ToC.

Attributes

FPI

FPI holds the Formal Public Identifier for the Set.

Status

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).
