Ahh, I was missing that documentation, thanks. I've also now found the flow 
object class reference, which helps a bit as well ;)

I'll ahve a read through what I've got so far... the DSSSL documentation 
project was interesting as well...if a little incomplete ;)

nope, none of the above - any ideas?

here's a sample run:
# docbook2pdf -d stylesheet Design_Docs.xml 

Using catalogs: /etc/sgml/catalog
Using stylesheet: /home/thomi/.docsdir/stylesheet
Working on: /home/thomi/.docsdir/Design_Docs.xml
jade:/usr/share/sgml/declaration/xml.dcl:31:27:W: characters in the document 
character set with numbers exceeding 65535 not supported

I'm not sure what the warning is all about, I aven't changed anythign in that 
file... and it works, so I'm not touching it ;)

Ahh, yes.. I am using XML then.. but I could probably change... should I?
