Book titles are italicized, but chapter titles (and titles of book sections, 
figures, tables, etc.) are normally set in quotes. Italicizing these features 
a bad hack, putting the needs of the writer ahead of those of the user.

I'm curious: could your two-template approach be automatable using structure 
some special DTD magic?
