Subject: RE: [docbook] DocBook on the Web

CSS-styled XML documents, including some DocBook documents, can also be rendered for printing, either through conversion to XSL-FO or directly to PDF. Useful for eg. rendering to PDF on-the-fly. See:


Both applications extend CSS a bit in order to support running headers, footnotes etc.

Complex DocBook documents would not be suitable for 'raw' rendering this way. But then again, many DocBook documents are actually close to an architectural form of XHTML.

Kind regards
