ok, so i'm getting a clearer picture.  again, what i really wanted to 
document was very much the *minimal* configuration one needs to start 
writing docbook in XML, and generating the most common output formats,
without overloading the poor newbie (i.e., me :-) with a lot of 
information he or she doesn't need to know.

so far, then, i can conclude that i don't care about SGML, and i can
pass on DSSSL and concentrate on XSL.  that makes for a more concise

any other advice?
