Subject: Re: [docbook] Furthering support for "existing standards"
Hi Tony, SC = subcommittee. The OASIS DocBook SubCommittee for Publishers is chartered to develop and maintain official variants of DocBook in support of the publishing industry. Specifically, the subcommittee will focus on schema and stylesheet customizations to support: periodicals as regularly published technical notes or journals, book publishing (such as business, legal, medical, and other non-technical domains), educational textbooks and other document types as appropriate for this industry. The DocBook Publishers Schema is based on DocBook 5.0, and delivered in the normative RelaxNG Schema format. We have developed a publishers.rnc and are in the process of getting the spec approved by the TC.
