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: http://sourceforge.net/projects/docbook/ So I guess the short answer to your question is "yes" :) David -----Original Message----- From: David Cramer Sent: Friday, January 11, 2002 4:19 PM To: Carlos Araya; firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: RE: DOCBOOK: Target is only technical docs? Tim, 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. David <snip> > > I'm wondering what ideas there are for DocBook.
