Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: DocBook Stylesheet ?


Thanks for your answer on that matter. Can you please tell me if this DSSSL
stylesheet for Frame is publicly available or if there is anyway to obtain
it. The formatting of the elements is exactly the way I'd like it to be.
Another question: do you know of any pdf backend (available or in
development) for Jade ?

Thanks for your time.

Stéphane Bline.
