The more xincludes our doc set accrues, the longer the doc build takes. This is the biggest problem I have encountered with DocBook. I've achieved whatever content reuse I've needed so far using xincludes and xpointer. I posted the permutations that I find useful here: http://wiki.docbook.org/topic/DocBookCookbook But they only work with xmllint. My experience with xincludes is that they resolve very quickly, though. Especially after I configured an XML catalog for xmllint, it resolves my intricate web of xincludes in seconds. Maybe the difference is that you are using a Java tool to resolve them? I would gladly give up the xincludes for a DocBook content sharing feature. Peter
