I still don't know what exact format is used for the Derby docs, since
the source files have not been made available.

But ArborText Epic is "just" an XML editor (and Content Engine) as I
understand it. It does not limit or specify (?) which format to
use. Actually, I find that docbook is quite often mentioned as the
source format used in that editor/environment.

So, just to calm my curiosity ;)

    What is the current XML format used for the soure doc files?

    How different is this format from Docbook? (Can I see an example)
