Subject: Re: SGML to XML: Should I switch? How to switch?


Sadly to say, I have to stuck with "SGML" because until now;
I still can not create a good PDF file with Ubuntu/Debian's
"out of the box" tools (i.e. with no hacking/patching).
Even "DocBook XSL: The Complete Guide" by Bob Stayton
confuses me, because there are too many options to
try, but all are tricky ("fo").

It seems that the "XSL/FO path" is better maintained; but it is 
recommended not for non-tech fellows (like myself).
Whereas the "DSSSL/jade/jadetex path" is more mature;
but "not so" maintained anymore (?)

<Last try.../>
Can anyone tell me exactly, what parameters should I
use with jade/jadetex, to make "test.pdf" from "test.xml" ?
