Hi, John!

First, I have one question: In the xml document, there is several
<title> tags. E.g., you have a title tag inside <articleinfo>, one
inside <sect1> an another one inside <sect2>. In the .sem file, how
can you distinguish between these title tags, so you can tell
linblouisxml to use one heading for title inside sect1 and another
heading level inside sect2?

I tried to define the title tag in the xml file as heading1. If I then
used the -Ccontents=yes, I got a segmentation fault message.

Thank you, I will look at this.

I'm using liblouisxml-1.8.0, and liblouis-1.5.2.
