Subject: RE: DOCBOOK: Problems creating pdf file of tdg

I would not mind buying a copy of TDG...

It's just that I'm a bit worried about the fact that I cannot publish a pdf
copy of TDG at this point.

I made some docbook xml files myself and could convert them successfully to
pdf format.

I'm afraid that once the xml files become more complex (like TDG) I will get
into trouble.

My question is:

Are the problems that I'm experiencing because the docbook-xsl-1.48 is not
"in sync" with the current TDG xml files from CVS and the docbook dtd it is
using? (TDG is using the EBNF Module version 1.0 (or 1.2?) which is an
extension to DocBook XML V4.1.2 It adds support for EBNF (extended
Backus-Naur form) diagrams)

In other words:

Will I get into trouble if I use 'standard' docbook dtd 4.1.2 and docbook
xsl 1.48?
