The <booklist> element is a general purpose element, designed for use in specializations, that references a topic or map containing a list of items within the book. For example, it could be used to reference a topic that contains a list of authors for the book. When a more specific element is already available, such as <tablelist> for a list of tables, that element should be used instead.
|bookmap, learningBookmap||no content|
In this case the <booklist> element references a topic that contains a list of authors of topics in this document.
<booklists> <toc/> <tablelist/> <booklist href="authors.dita" navtitle="List of authors"/> </booklists>
|Name||Description||Data Type||Default Value||Required?|
|navtitle||Specifies the title of the topic as it will appear in the navigation or tables of contents that are generated from the map. Beginning with DITA 1.2, the preferred way to specify the navigation title in a map is with the navtitle element, available inside the topicmeta element.||CDATA||#IMPLIED||No|
|href||Points to a manual listing for the current element. See The href attribute for detailed information on supported values and processing implications. 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 specified.
Use the <linktext> and <shortdesc> in the <topicref>'s <topicmeta> to provide a unique name and short description for the new copy.
|topicref-atts attribute group (collection-type, processing-role, type, scope, locktitle, format, linking, toc, print, search, chunk)||A set of related attributes. See topicref-atts, topicref-atts-no-toc, and topicref-atts-without-format attribute groups.|
|univ-atts attribute group (includes select-atts, id-atts, and localization-atts groups)||A set of related attributes, described in univ-atts attribute group|
|global-atts attribute group (xtrf, xtrc)||A set of related attributes, described in global-atts attribute group|
|class, outputclass, keyref||Keyref provides a redirectable reference based on a key defined within a map. See The keyref attribute for information on using this attribute. Class and outputclass are described in Other common DITA attributes|
