Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] DocBook in Education

I produce all training materials for my company's XML/XSLT courses
using DocBook, employing the roundtripping stylesheets to edit the
documents using a word processor (I happen to use Apple's Pages,
but others use that other software company's word processor ;-)

We use the DocBook XSL stylesheets to produce printed course notes,
with plentiful customisations to get the right look.  I've also  
and make available, XSL stylesheets to create Keynote slideshows
(I'll probably also look into PowerPoint in Office 12 if/when I get
hold of it) and also SVG slideshows (very cool, especially for non- 

BTW, IMO supporting SVG is better than (fancy) Flash; the tools to
generate SVG (ie. XSLT) are readily available (and free, in most cases).
SVG viewers are starting to become available.

Regards from hot, sunny Australia!
