Subject Re: docbook in forrest
Date Thu, 11 Nov 2004 17:32:27 GMT

Best you update to a current version, I don't know about 0.5.

We have done a project with the support Forrest offers for
docbook and the answer is: yes, it works. But. Forrest has
limited support for sDocBook, i.e. some (not all) element
from simplified DocBook are translated "correctly" into
Forrest's document format. There is a sample document
for DocBook when you do 'forrest seed' with the current
version that shows what is possible and what not.

I think I read in some mail that someone is working on a
plugin for better DocBook support ... is this right?
