This book was of great help to me: http://www.sagehill.net/book-description.html http://www.sagehill.net/book-description.html . I couldn't say enough good words about it as a reference. In my environment, it was important to have a single package for installation. I found that the Velocity framework has a DocBook component http://velocity.apache.org/docbook/ http://velocity.apache.org/docbook/ and I started using it. Twiking it to use 0.94 FOP and various docbook-xsl files was trivial. I prefer the command line for my document generations (that way I can include it with my builds). Velocity fits this nicely with its Ant controlled build. As for editors, I prefer simple text editors when dealing with markup languages. I experimented with XmlMind but found it (personally) difficult to use. It was a fine product but I found it easier to work lower in the weeds. -Fred -- View this message in context: http://www.nabble.com/Getting-started%3A-editors%2C-direct-rendering%2C-which-DTD--tf4621199.html#a13240285 Sent from the docbook General mailing list archive at Nabble.com.
