Hi again,

I've been playing around with contracts that seem related to the subject 
(namely content-title.ft and title.ft) but I cannot figure out how to do what I 
want in an easy way.

Also I've found a new problem (although it doesn't affect me right now): the 
content-title.ft contract description says it deal with subtitles but I don't 
see the code for doing it. In fact I've not succeeded using subtitles in my 
xdocs: using a subtitle element inside a header element produces no output at 

Any ideas? Help will be appreciated.
