AFAICT, there has not been a position taken on callouts. The
impaired-reader issue is best solved by adding audio content because
even with text-to-audio support NONE of the pictures and such can be
rendered to audio, though pehaps the <textobject> tag might be picked
up. DocBook has special audio-related tags when or if we get round
to making an audio translation of the material.
We don't have a position, but they are useful when you have lots of code
or the like to refer back to.
I've used them when documenting the (former) Red Hat CMS product.
Perhaps we could get Garrett LeSage, who did the
icons for us, to render some peachy-keen callout digits. If not, I
could probably SVG a few.
He actually did some up for us way back when. They look the standard
callouts in /usr/share/sgml/docbook/xsl-stylesheets/images/callouts,
with a soft dropshadow on them.
I'll figure out their disposition and, if possible, put them in CVS.
Otherwise, Thomas can use the standard ones in the meantime.
As for the crappy archive searches: YES! My solution was to get a
account and subscribe to the list from there in addition to
my "working" account on my desktop. That lets me use their nifty
search tools to scan the archives.
Oh, yeah, that's what I do, sub'd to f-*-l. I also have my gmail.com
account set to watch kwade(a)redhat.com in bugzilla.redhat.com
, so now I
have my own personal Google search tool. :)
