Diane, The FM9 DocBook starter kit uses DocBook 4.1.2 for XML and DocBook 4.1 for SGML, but your own application can use a later version, whether you start from scratch or base your work on the starter kit. To create your own EDD from the starter kit EDD and update to a later version, open the starter kit EDD, then use the StructureTools > Import DTD command. In the resulting dialog box, specify the DTD for the version of DocBook you want to use as the DTD to import. --Lynne Lynne A. Price Text Structure Consulting, Inc.
