I am thrilled by finding docbook-2-html and the other docbook-2-foo
scripts as they to what I want to do without having to fight. This is
how it should be - why aren't these great tools mentioned in the HOWTO
files on the web?

And there are even man pages.

For the beginning, they do exactly what I currently need: Provide
conversion from docbook sources to HTML and PDF to aid the writing
process. I can think about making the output look good later. This is
great news, and I _really_ appreciate your help.

No, it doesn't.

No output with that:

All of the above was done with openjade1.3. All I am currently
concerned is getting any output with a reasonably "free" tool chain.
