The <booklist> element is a general purpose element, designed for use in specializations, that references a list of particular types of topics within the book. It indicates to the processing software that the author wants that list of topics generated at the particular location. For example, it could be used in a specialization to reference the location of a list of program listings or of authors of topics.

|Name||Description||Data Type||Default Value||Required?|
|navtitle||Specifies the title of the topic as it will appear in navigation or tables of contents generated from the map.||CDATA||#IMPLIED||No|
|href||Points to a manual listing for the current element. If no href is specified, processors may choose to generate an appropriate listing for this element. All of the book listings operate in a similar manner; for example, <toc href="toc.dita"/> points to a topic which contains a manual table of contents, while <toc/> indicates that a processor should generate the table of contents. References to content other than DITA topics should use the format attribute to identify the kind of resource being referenced.||CDATA||#IMPLIED||No|
|copy-to||Use the copy-to attribute on the <topicref>
element to provide a different file name for a particular instance of the
topic in the map (for example, to separate out the different versions of the
topic, rather than combining them on output). The links and navigation associated
with that instance will point to a copy of the topic with the file name you
Use the <linktext> and <shortdesc> in the <topicref>'s <topicmeta> to provide a unique name and short description for the new copy.
