Most Excellent Ross,

Just a question. How do you propose managing Docbook :-)

Stupid ppl, like me, like to use the power of all the Docbook Stylesheets as 
they do 99% of everything we need for publishing. So, as you know, there is a 
set of XHTML XSLT for DocbookXML2XHTML.

If Forrest could input the XHTML from Docbook it would be so nice.
