Sure that looks fine. You should also look at the tags used in the
chapter-introduction.xml as that probably covers most
markup that is needed. The one tricky area I found with the conversion
is how to represent syntax highlighting e.g:

  <span style="color:red">hello-world.htm</span>

Since docbook is only concerned with data, how do we highlight
hello-world.htm? Or Velocity directives?

My workaround was to dedicate certain docbook tags for these
scenarios. For example I used <symbol> for Velocity
directives and <varname> for Velocity variables.

kind regards
