Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: Change Bars

/ Stephen Rasku <stephen@tgivan.com> was heard to say:
| Is there any way to generate change bars from a DocBook document?  If 
| not, is there any intention of adding this functionality?

Then process the document with changebars.xsl and you'll get something
like change bars (http://www.w3.org/TR/2000/REC-xml-20001006-review.html).

                                        Be seeing you,

P.S. I have a java version of diffmk that is in some ways better than
the perl version. I'm working on getting it released.
