Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: Newsletter possible (help?)

I wouldn't recommend it.  A newsletter is a small, highly visual 
document.  Columns, throws, and sidebars would be tricky.

In addition to understanding DocBook markup (which is not tailored for 
newsletters), you would need to understand at least three of the following:

   DSSSL (Jade)
   XSL (Saxon, XT, or Xalan)

   TeX ((La)TeX, JadeTeX, and/or PassiveTeX)
   FO (FOP)

   RTF (a word processor)
   PDF (Acrobat)
   PostScript (PS printer or GhostScript)

Use a desktop publishing program.
