Ooops. Did not mean to imply otherwise.

Yes, I am aware. Please note that O'Reilly focuses on the tech market.

Please name the one specific thing that you would like to be easier.

>glues separate documents together
I am confused. If we are talking about a simple blogg, why are we talking
about glueing documents together ?

Please note that I am a newbie and trying to figure out where the various
tool sets fit in. So, if I am making silly comments or asking silly
questions, request your patience.

My standards a lower there.
Aesthetics are important but not prio 1.
And IMHO DocBook output *is* nice.

And you do know, that O'Reilly books (all/some/a few?!?) are written in
DocBook "nowadays", don't you?

Maybe blogging&sharing would get far more often done, if the means were

My current experience is "DocBook Website",
which glues separate documents together using a "layout.xml",
which serves quite a few different purposes including customization.

I would even regard it as acceptable to maintain something like the source
of the RSS/atom feeds,
which could be the corresponding thing to that "layout.xml".

Fair enough.
Thanks for your contribution.

I just wanted to ask around and maybe suggest and idea.
Sometimes it take a spark, you know, in order to start projects, tiny ones
and big ones.

Just my $0.05.
