Subject: FW: [tcmembers] DocBook Specification environment

Hello XLIFF TC members,

I wholeheartedly endorse the idea of maintaining our XLIFF spec in an OASIS standard. I find this notice about Docbook very encouraging. If we found the DITA/DITA OT option equally compelling, I'd be happy to consider that option as well.

I think we should take a good look at moving to one of these standards for our specification. I'm very interested in the opinions of the TC on this (I guess a move to one of these standards would need to be *do-able* from the spec editor's point of view as a first step).

Subject: [tcmembers] DocBook Specification environment

Ken Holman has just completed a set of revisions to the DocBook OASIS specification template environment. On behalf of OASIS, I would like to express our gratitude to Ken and to the several spec editors who worked with Ken throughout the process. Not only do we have a complete set of stylesheets for both online and PDF creation, we also have accompanying documentation detailing the process from authoring through production.

You can view that documentation here: http://docs.oasis-open.org/templates/DocBook/spec-0.5/oasis-specification-0.5-wd03.html and of course the specific stylesheets and documentation in html, xml and pdf are linked from the main OASIS templates page at http://docs.oasis-open.org/templates/

If you are on a TC that is using DocBook to create and maintain your spec, be sure to grab the new package. For those of you that might be considering using structured markup, please check out the documentation. There are several very experienced users who I'm sure will be happy to lend a hand to help you get started.

Thanks again to Ken Holman, Jon Bosak, Scott Hudson and Will Norris (and my apologies if I've inadvertently left anyone out!).
