Subject: PACBook announce


I'm pleased (also slightly nervous) to announce the PACBook project.
This is a suite of linguistic pre-processing stylesheets for XML
documentation, primarily aimed at DocBook.

The project is hosted here:


The stylesheets deal with two inter-related areas:

1. Translating documents;

2. The linguistic consequences of transclusion and / or conditional

Users of Publican may be interested to know that, among many other
things, these stylesheets attempt to address the linguistic problems
mentioned here:


Although I'm using these stylesheets daily (along with the DocBook XSL
stylesheets) and have been for years, this is not a 1.0 release.
Documentation is, ironically, a work in progress — see the doc folder or
the wiki, and unit tests are basically non-existent.

I'm happy to offer these stylesheets to the DocBook community in the
hope that someone will find them useful. Contributions are welcome.
