Subject: Re: [docbook] What's the difference between complete DTD and simplified one?

In addition, there are LiveDTD presentations of DocBook 4.5 and Simplified 1.1, the last versions of each in the DocBook 4 line of DTDs. The LiveDTD version lists the elements, so you can easily explore what is available in each:



If you aren't familiar with LiveDTD, see:

Simplified DocBook is a small subset of DocBook. There is a description of it at:


It can be useful for single documents (articles, etc., but not books or sets), or for situations where you'ld like to generate legal DocBook documents, but want to limit the number of elements you use.

Generally, if you don't have a particular reason for using the simplified grammar, you're probably better off using the complete grammar. In addition, at the moment, there isn't a simplified version of DocBook 5.0, which is the latest release. So, if you want to be up-to-date with the latest, you should work with the complete schema.

Hope that helps.

I'm new to it and the syntax doesn't really make any sense.
