Did you ever open source this ? Or is it easy to read in an ascii-like
format to see what you have done without installing OS/2.

Well in general, I've found it trivial (using for example IBM's lotusxsl
tool) to generate HTML from the XML using an XSLT stylesheet. Which I am
using also for some of the UI experiments. PDF is easy from there.

Did you have a look at the file I sendt in the previous msg ? Would that
be enough for your OS/2 docs and for your OS/2 configurator to be driven
from it, or would you need more ?
