Subject: RE: DOCBOOK: Target is only technical docs?

Oh yeah...I forgot to mention: for an example of the kind of thing I'm
talking about (where you pull the docbook dtd into a specialized dtd and
also piggy back of of existing  xsls), study the slides and website dtds
and xsls:

So I guess the short answer to your question is "yes" :)

The modular design of the dtd also makes it easy to pull parts into
another dtd of 
your own creation. For example, you might create a resume.dtd that at
some points allows docbook paras (and the paras take the standard
docbook inlines). See http://docbook.org/tdg/en/html/ch05.html. I do
know of a resume dtd <https://sourceforge.net/projects/xmlresume>, but
unfortunately it doesn't use docbook in this way, so one of its
weaknesses is a lack of inline elements. I've been meaning to post that
as a suggestion for that project.
