Subject: RE: [docbook] DocBook SGML article and titlepage, + remove header

|  -----Original Message-----
|  From: Lars "Bjørndal" 
|  Well, I've read this article:
|  <http://www.redhat.com/magazine/016feb06/features/docbook_xml/>
|  Here, it's recommended to use xmlto to convert documents to several
|  formats. About PDF output, however, the following is stated:
|    "Unfortunately, xmlto currently produces unattractive PDF 
|  files, but
|    there are alternatives available. The docbook2* script 
|  wrappers may be
|    useful in this regard. These helper scripts use openjade to convert
|    DocBook source into other formats. 

IMHO, there are more modern tools than xmlto and openjade. I really think
you should look into the DocBook XSL stylesheets.

Start here: http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/index.html

|  Is there another way to specify that the image should be one of the
|  title page elements, which says it should be placed at the 
|  bottom left?
|  E.g. could the word "normalize" be exchanged with some other 
|  command, or something like that?

My DSSSL knowledge is shallow and rusty. I have no idea, sorry.
