   From a look at the Docbook stylesheets, it appears that the
<artheader> and its children never get processed by normal element
rules, at least not to any effect.  If you search for "artheader" in
dbinfo.dsl, you'll find a series of rules that create empty sosofos
for <artheader> and its children.
   The procedure you'll want to override is $component-title$ in
dbcompon.dsl.  Unfortunately, it's kind of large and somewhat
complicated, because it handles title generation for all types of
components, not just <article>s, but you should be able to just fiddle
with the flow object characteristics near the end to get what you're
