#110 format simplepara w/run-in-head

XSL (399)
Devin Bayer

I occasionally desire formalparas with more than one
paragraph. I believe I could get a similar effect if
simpleparas had run-in-heads.

The way I have been doing this is to make a formal para
followed by normal paras, but this isn't right since it
really should be a collection of paras.

Some printed text uses run-in-heads with multiple
paragraphs. They use first-line-indented paras instead
of space seperated. A space is added after the
collection of indented paras. To be able to use this
formatting in the future it would make most sense to
write the document with simpleparas, because the
processor wouldn't easily know when to introduce the
line break if I'm using my current method.

But at the moment I want run-in-heads, so I can't use
simpleparas until they can look like formalparas.

I feel this feature could be used by others and if it
would get included into docbook-xsl then I would write
the appropriate XSL modifications.

    Ah, well, lots of things change when you have a two year follow up time.
    I don't use docbook anymore, so I'm not going to be submiting any patch.
