As a test case I transformed the current CVS sitemap.xml file to
Docbook and then improved the markup manually until it was more or
less complete. There are some things remaining (whether to keep the
chapter strucure of the "Interface Specifications" or make this
<chapter> it a <reference>). 

For those interested in my results, I have put all my Docbook stuff
(i.e. Docbook XML source, HTML, XSL:FO and PDF) at


FOP-0_14_0 seems to work quite well. The remaining problems 
(line breaks are ignored within program listings) probably lie within
Norm's Docbook->XSL:FO stylesheets. (I say this as Norm's XSL:FO
stylesheets seem to be slightly outdated in some respects - e.g. they
don't seem know about <classsynopsis> yet.) I'll investigate that
matter further, of course.
