Nopenopenopenope... I think you didn't understand what Stefano wanted to
say... He's a visionary, and in his quest for the perfect DTD for his
thesis, I believe he found DocBook :)
I am more than sure that Cocoon will not be limited to be a DocBook
publishing engine (let's not be restrictive :), but I'm sure we'll see
in the distribution a bunch of source files (like the docs) and a bunch
of stylesheets to use this DTD...
Anyway nothing binding... (I still use our nice FAQ/CHANGES/DOCUMENT
dtd... I'm not going to buy a book on a DTD - with all due respect to
Norman and the others, of course... I just don't need it :)
