Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Status on Simplified docbook?

Sorry for the delay in responding, as this required a bit of research.

The DocBook TC is on record as intending to do a Simplified DocBook 5, but it has not 
yet happened. Instead, the TC spent its time developing a different DocBook variant 
called the DocBook Publishers Schema. Like Simplified, this schema removes technical 
documentation elements, but unlike Simplified, it includes book, chapter, and other 
structure elements beyond article. The Publishers Schema also adds new elements not in 
the base DocBook 5.  You can find its specification and schemas under the heading 
"Technical Work Produced by the Committee" on the OASIS DocBook Publishers 
Subcommittee page:


The TC still intends to do a Simplified DocBook 5 version as well. No date yet.

Just a quick question. Currently, the Docbook subset Simplified Docbook is based on 
Docbook V4.3 (according to the documentation at OASIS) . Any plans to update to 
Docbook 5 in the near future? Besides that, I was not able to find any Relax-NG schema 
for Simplified Docbook, only DTD. I read somewhere that Relax NG schema for Docbook 
should be considered as normative. Are there any Relax NG schema files for Simplified 
Docbook for download somewhere?

Thank you.
