Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] anyone have a windows-based publishing infrastructure?


I can recommend using Cygwin for processing Docbook on Windows 
platforms. You get the xml-dtd, the xsl stylesheets, xmllint, xsltproc 
and xmlto as Cygwin packages. If you want pdf processing as well, you 
have to additionally install Passivetex and XmlTex, which works 
smoothly. I've posted a howto some time ago here: 

Alternatively, you can also give Igor Zlatkovic's Windows port of the 
libxml and libxslt packages (xmllint and xsltproc) a try. Additionally 
you need to download the xml-dtd and xsl stylesheets from sourceforge 
and install libiconv, also available from Igor's site 
http://www.zlatkovic.com/projects/index.html. I'm not using them for my 
work, but when I gave them a try, they worked pretty well.
