Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] DocBook Customization -- Subsets

| We've looked at the simplified version of DocBook and it's TOO simple.
| We have a couple of examples of local style manuals (thank you!). If
| anyone else wants to share their tag subsets, that would be gratefully
| received. We appreciate the goal of reducing complexity and
| ambiguity--makes sense--but we're less clear where to begin for a set
| of books above the article level.

Our local style doesn't support the 'book' element---all our
publications are articles---but it's enough for our few dozen
separate publications.  Here's our user manual:


This document has two purposes:

  - It has localizing information, like where in our file system
    you can get model Makefiles, and how to use xep (which we
    love and have under an academic license).

  - Since I also do the stylesheet customization, the approach was
    to describe only the tags that are decently supported in our
    stylesheet layer.

Here's our local stylesheet layer, in literate form (the
definitive versions of the XSLT files displayed here actually
reside in the DocBook source):
