Well, is IS XML, just the DTD is an SGML one. All strict XML like
correct closing and shortened tags as well as case sensitivity are
obeyed, I just haven't checked if anything special changed between
DocBook/SGML and DocBook/XML but it should be trivial to fix that.

Well, DSSSL wasn't sufficient layout-wise and python is some magnitudes
faster than Jade.

I wouldn't care too much about the Python output now, HTML is important
and XSLT is THE choice here.

I see, how long would it take to transform into HTML compared to Jade?

So we cannot slice the HTML output into several files? That's sort of a
problem, really. It took quite some time to figure out how to get Jade
to do that and still releases are a pain in the neck because there's a
lot which has do be done manually still.

First of all we need ideas what the help should like and which nifty
features we might be able to introduce. Mel wanted redo the complete
structure anyway so we have lots of freedom to design...
