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

Hi Karen,

Have you considered the DocBook Publishers schema customization? It's available on Sourceforge at:

It would be fairly easy to include any of the technical inlines you might need as well.

Best regards,

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.

We could authorize like, twenty tags, and then require people to argue
for additions, but that could be a de-motivator. ;) (The first DocBook
sample I worked with from the community was using EBNF!)
