Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Re: SGML to XML: Should I switch? How to switch?
Some replies to your questions: >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). > > Hmmm, if you use SGML, creating pdf with OpenJade is quite easy. I do it everyday. You just have to apt-get the adequate packages (openjade, opensp, docbook-dsssl-stylesheets). But listen, you don't have to stay with SGML just for generating PDF. You can use openjade tool with XML and generate PDF. It is wrong, as I think I have read, that openjade is only for SGML. >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 (?) > It is false that openjade is not maintained anymore. I am myself developing openjade, and I plan to remove the jadetex tool in a near future making openjade output pure tex. If I can, I will do it during august. And expect more updates to come next year. ><Last try.../> >Can anyone tell me exactly, what parameters should I >use with jade/jadetex, to make "test.pdf" from "test.xml" ? > > In Debian you have some directory with a lot of help about this. Try this file in your debian box: /usr/share/doc/docbook-dsssl-doc/html/index.html I hope it helps. Javi
