AFAIK both use XML (docbook and derivates) as primary source format and render them as HTML, but can also output HTML files. While "developing docs" one benefit is, they can display your changes by a simple reload - without waiting minutes before 'make/ninja html' finish. If we can get our docs in both apps by * adding a metafile (.omf or .desktop) at the right place and * probably reordering component and language of the path it would be worth the effort. BTW I prefer to stick with docbook as source format as it is well defined and we have the validation by xmllint. To illustrate it, just compare gnucash (docbook) with the from the content ways less complex gnucash-htdocs (HTML in variants 1.0 - xhtml) with some PHP glue, which is almost unmaintainable. When I the last time tried https://validator.w3.org/check, I gave up after 2 days of fixing. –Frank _______________________________________________ gnucash-devel mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.gnucash.org/mailman/listinfo/gnucash-devel
