I got no takers on this... it'd be great if someone could tell me how
a split transaction looks for a stock sale with a loss (the mentioned
example below shows a gain).

Section 8.7 of the guide in table 8.1 it shows how to split a stock
sale (see http://www.gnucash.org/docs/v1.8/C/gnucash-guide/
invest_sell1.html#invest_sellexample2). The example is with a
capital gain. How does this transaction look if there is a loss?
Instead of Income:Capital Gains in the "Buy" column, would it be
Expense:Capital Loss in the "Sell" column? And what about the
balancing split for the Asset:Stock:SYMBOL?
