This looses a lot as Markdown does not include a number of features of asciidoc (like admonitions).

This is the first tool I tried, it is missing a lot of formatting capabilities that FOP and Latex have, but with FOP appearing to be all but abandoned (and me having some problems with it), Iâm looking at a replacement for it. So maybe the question I should have asked is:

Is a docbook->html->pdf toolchain recommended over a docbook->latex->pdf toolchain?

Is there some tooling that is definitely recommended over others for either of those chains?
