This is correct, at least according to the parser file.  Maybe DEFAULT
means to use the type's default value.  Should probably be documented.

To be precise, the content of each block element.  E.g.,

<chapter>
 <title>foo</title>

 <para>
  content
 </para>

 <sect1>
  <title>...

Verbatim environments should not be indented, especially the closing tags.
Otherwise you get spurious empty lines in the output.

The locale variables at the bottom of each file should adjust this.  Maybe
you haven't turned them on?  Or you could set up Emacs as described in the
Developer's Guide.

Well, in the source I have from you it seems to insert a tab character.

In the declaration (<!DOCTYPE...) you replace article or book by whatever
your top level element is.  No special switches should be required for
either one.  But you need to insert that declaration for processing.
