The simplified docbook input plugin can deal with full docbook (up to
a point) and simplified docbook. The following doctypes are tested for:

        <sourcetype name="docbook-v4.2">
          <document-declaration public-id="-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML
V4.2//EN" />
        <sourcetype name="docbook-v4.1.2">
          <document-declaration public-id="-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML
V4.1.2//EN" />
        <sourcetype name="sdocbook-v1.0">
          <document-declaration public-id="-//OASIS//DTD Simplified
DocBook XML V1.0//EN" />

Your tutorial.xml required:
<!DOCTYPE book PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.2//EN"
specifing book as the root node not article. This now validates agains
the forrest catalogs without the above errors.

Forrest can skin single docbook or sdocbook pages referenced from site.xml.
IMO chunked files from the docbook chunker can not be skinned easily. There
is no need to use docbook stylesheets directly to integrate your full docbook

1) I'd suggest not thinking about chunking now and remove any work you have
tried from your sitemap.xmap files. Or better still do a fresh:
forrest seed

2) Add a link to tutorial.html in site.xml
    <doc-tutorial label="OpenPBX Tutorial (docbook)" href="tutorial.html"
                  description="OpenPBX Tutorial by Fabian"/>

3) Add to your file

4) forrest clean; forrest site
You may need an internet connection the first time you do this to get the

I've put a demo up showing two of my test sdocbook pages and two docbook
pages your openPBX tutorial and a Linux howto. It all works nicely to
have these skinned in Forrest. See the docbook tab.

Please stick with it Fabian. Next stage, skinned docbook chunks ;)
