Hi Jane, As Yamil explains it is a multistep process using xsltproc and fop to get the PDF output. The current documentation does not use a2x for the PDF content. There is an old repository of stylesheets here:
https://github.com/rsoulliere/Evergreen_Documentation_Tools/tree/master/stylesheets/evergreen_docbook_files There is some old but good documentation on customizing the output of the documentation: http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/CustomizingPart.html One key tool you will need to install is FOP as explained in this chapter: http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/InstallingAnFO.html n Not sure if this is still useful since it has been a long time since I have installed it on a server. Regards, Robert From: OPEN-ILS-DOCUMENTATION [mailto:open-ils-documentation-boun...@list.georgialibraries.org] On Behalf Of Yamil Suarez Sent: December-01-16 3:25 PM To: Documentation discussion for Evergreen software <email@example.com> Subject: Re: [OPEN-ILS-DOCUMENTATION] How do you make a2x PDF output stylish? Jane, As far as I know, the folks that set up the documentation server also created some templates that at some point in the conversion process get called when the HTML and PDF versions are created. Additionally, the complete process behinds the scenes is to take the AsciiDoc and convert it to DocBook XML. Then the DocBook XML is combined with the aforementioned header/footer templates created by the EG community. Somewhere I have a link to a Github page with copies of older versions of those templates. Let em know if you want to look at them, but remember they are in DocBook format.

However, when I run the a2x command, I just get the run-of-the-mill dblatex style. [2, 3] How can I get the lovely Evergreen formatting? Is that defined in a file somewhere? Or are there more arguments I should be passing to the a2x command?
