I searched for this in the web but didnt found anything. so i did it 
myself and build an xsl stylesheet on top of docbook. but it is more 
experimental. if you are interested i can send it to you by mail. but 
it works with our layout pretty fine and with XEP engine it really 
looks very professional.
