Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) Version 1.2

The <bookmeta> element contains information about the book that is not considered book content, such as copyright information, author information, and any classifications.

Example

In this example:
  • The <authorinformation> contains the content for a reader's comment form; the <maintainer> element references that author information to create the reader comment form.
  • The <prodinfo> element contains the book's product information. This includes the product name, and the version, release, and modification information.
  • The <bookid> element contains the book's form number and part number information. The <maintainer> element contains information about the current maintainer of the book; it may reference the <authorinformation> element to provide detailed information about an author that is also the current maintainer.
  • The <bookrights> element contains the book's copyright information.

This example makes heavy use of authorinformation, which is a domain element that OASIS delivers only with the bookmap specialization. However, other bookmap DTDs or schemas may not include the domain with authorinformation; likewise, authorinformation may be included in other document types.
