1 Comments from Cédric Pronzato (

2 Context  Openup docbook format to content different from technical (IT) document type  No specific requirements yet defined  Brainstorming mode  From current spec:  Line, linegroup, speaker are fine  Questions about drama, poetry and dialogue  More detailed spec seems possible

3 Definitions  Drama: A composition, in prose or poetry, accommodated to action, and intended to exhibit a picture of human life, or to depict a series of grave or humorous actions of more than ordinary interest, tending toward some striking result. It is commonly designed to be spoken and represented by actors on the stage. (link)link  Poetry: Imaginative language or composition, whether expressed rhythmically or in prose. Specifically: Metrical composition; verse; rhyme; poems collectively; as, heroic poetry; dramatic poetry; lyric or Pindaric poetry. (link)link  Dialogue: A written composition in which two or more persons are represented as conversing or reasoning on some topic (link)link


5 Table of Persons  By order of appearance  Person status  (how about person with different status?)

6 Scene description/ Scene slug  Scene name  Scene description  Speaker and line (linegroup)

7  […] Scene description (maybe a better word exists)


9  Nothing that interesting

10  Sometimes there is a numbering  Often when it is a song

11 Conclusion  Drama and poetry seems really different  Drama needs new elements: Scene, acte, table of person … (need to be studied)


13  Screenplay: Written text that provides the basis for a film production. Screenplays usually include not only the dialogue spoken by the characters but also a shot-by-shot outline of the film's action. screenplay, the script of a film, comprising dialogue (and/or narration) with instructions for sets and camera positions. (link)link  Seems to all use the same presentation conventions (link describes a lot of things)link  Some CSS already exists (link)link  Document often refactored I guess

14 Conclusion  Looks like previous drama  Drama needs new elements (need to be studied)  Drama, Poetry and Screenplay can have their own root element  Dialogue is an abstract container with no much meaning. Having it is maybe a good idea for extension for the things that are not of the 3 previous types. May also be used a non root element
