I use the caption element to do something similar to your example. <equation> <title>My Title</title> <mathphrase>M = (N * C) / 2</mathphrase> <caption> <para>M = An explanation</para> <para>N = Some more explanation</para> <para>C = Another explanation</para> </caption> </equation>

Thanks for this example Peter.

What docbook element(s) would you recommend for implementing such an explanation (maybe considering that it's meant for print output, PDF)?
