Subject: Re[2]: DOCBOOK: Re[2]: Which conversion method should I use?

Hello David,

XEP (evaluation) it hangs parsing the FO file, (FOP works well with the same file)
Epic Editor doesn't have an evaluation version and I don't trust in
refunds ;-)
I'm downloading Antenna right now, and I will only buy if it works
well, of course.

It's suprising there's no a good-free-easy tool to process FO, I think the
best is FOP, but it's unfinished. I will try PassiveTex, but I think
is too much complicated to install on a Windows system.

So, I think it would be nice to a DocBook developer have something like
-DocBook editor, like AbiWord (DocBook support is still in beta) with full support for DocBook.
-With publishing features to save documents as HTML, PDF and several other formats.
-Very easy an intuitive as another text editor
-OpenSource and cross-platform Windows/Linux

I think this program will rock! not only because is what I need,
because any person will be able to use DocBook without XML, SGML
knowledge ;-)

Best Regards.
