Subject RE: Printable ant 1.3 manual anywhere?

Ringo-

I have not worked with DocBook before, so I can't say much about it.  I just
glanced at the online manual at docbook.org, however, and it looks pretty
complex.  I have to admit that one of the factors guiding me in converting
the HTML docs to XML is to simplify things for the documentors.  In my
cursory glance at DocBook, I am not sure it fits the bill in this regard,
though I certainly could be wrong (feel free to set me straight if I am!
:-).

Regards,
Chris

I use DocBook because I also have the stylesheets to convert to
HTML, JavaHelp and PDF (actually xsl-fo, but using FOP, fo can
be converted to PDF).

Cheers,

Ringo
