DocBook and XML

  • technically, DocBook is just an XML schema which defines set of elements and attributes allowed in DocBook documents

  • writing DocBook content is similar to HTML authoring—you just have to learn new element names

  • there are ready to use DSSSL and XSL stylesheets for DocBook

  • there are many generic XML tools that can be used to edit, store, manage, transform, query and process DocBook content
