Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] WebWorks Help Output

I had a client with a similar issue, and so I wrote a DocBook-to-DITA XSL 
transform to use as a preprocessor for that output.  They used a 
well-defined subset of DocBook and so the stylesheet did not have to account 
for all DocBook elements and combinations.  As far as I know, they are still 
using that in production.  I can't share that stylesheet with you, but it 
was pretty straightforward to develop.
