Subject: ANN: Roundtripping DocBook to/from Word

A set of XSL stylesheets has been developed by Steve Ball,
in conjunction with Bob Stayton, that allows DocBook
documents to be transformed into Microsoft Word (WordML),
or Apple Pages, documents.  There are also stylesheets
included that transform WordML, or Pages, documents into

These stylesheets, and the styles that they rely on,
have been designed to allow DocBook documents to be
"round-tripped" through Word.  That is, a DocBook document
can be transformed into Word and then transformed back into
DocBook without loss of structure or data.  The aim is to
allow a commonly available word processor to be used to
edit DocBook documents.

See http://www.explain.com.au/oss/docbook/ for notes on how to
use the stylesheets, along with which DocBook elements
are currently supported.

The XSL stylesheets are being distributed as part of the
DocBook XSL SourceForge project.  The next release will
include the stylesheets in the "wordml" subdirectory.
