Hello!  I now have an ISBN for the digital online version of my Open Source book, from the Author's Guide I can't figure out what set of PreTeXt tags to use to display it. Any recommendations? It is supposed to be displayed on the  on the screen that displays the title (i.e. the initial screen displayed when the content is first accessed and/or on the screen that carries the copyright notice).

Dear Jan,

We do not have anything explicit for an ISBN number, and we should. Maybe
several (e.g. hardback v. paperback).

A few years ago, I'd have said this belonged in "docinfo", but now I think it is
a publisher file entry.

This would be a great project for someone who wants to learn Alex's easy setup
routine for publisher file entries and wants to touch *nearly every* conversion.

If you, dear reader, are that someone, open a thread on "-dev" to discuss markup
- we always want to get that very right first.
