Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: Re: DOCBOOK: ready-to-go Win32 environment

Hello Bob,

It has a single point of contention (which wasn't an issue for me). It
needs to be installed on c:\ and it creates a directory named docbook.
So, if you already have a directory called c:\docbook, you have some
customization to do. You could just grep for the hardcoded references
and change them to something else.

I appreciate them putting this together. It is essentially a set of
batch files and all of the downloads necessary to get started. As
such, it is a nice working example of an XSL toolchain. I particularly
liked the batch files that created a new book or article. It creates a
reasonable directory structure for each.

Also, because the "environment" is held together by batch files, it is
easy to customize. For example, all of their batch files clear the
console before they run. I don't like that, so I changed them.
