Subject: RE: DOCBOOK: Newbie dealing with RPMs

I've been using the RPMs that Hugo van der Kooij created.  They're probably
on his website someplace, http://home.kabelfoon.nl/~hvdkooij/, but I don't
have the URL direct to the RPMS.  They work well for processing BOTH DocBook
and LinuxDoc, but you don't use the same tools.  SGMLtools v1 work ONLY with
LinuxDoc, they are not designed to be able to do anything else.  SGMLTools
are supposed to be able to handle other DTDs, but so far, I haven't been
able to make that work.
