Use id's

Hint #cantremember: Use ID's where-ever you're allowed to

This makes crossreferencing later on (using XRef or whatsoever) easier, and references are very nice and usefull (look at WikiPedia and others).

Hint 3: Write directly in DocBook format

As you might know I first wrote my first 2 articles in this blog. I docbook'ized the first one, which went quite well, now in progress doing the second one, which is a real PITA.

So, little hint: don't write plaintext files first, write DocBook code/tags directly.

Just open the like this:
