| From what I heard O'Reilly uses non-free tools. Which one BTW?

O'Reilly uses a mixture of free and non-free tools for SGML
publishing.  Many books have been published with a toolchain that I
helped write when I worked there. It's basically a SGML->groff
script. However, TDG was published with a SGML->MIF DSSSL script and
final composition was done in Frame.
