G'day folk,

At Perl Training Australia we write our course notes with a text editor in sgml
and then use sgmltools, jadetex, pdfeTeX, ps2pdf etc to get a pdf we can print
and distribute.  We also have some of our more recent course notes written in
pod and use pod2docbook (our customised copy) to add that into the chain.

This works well enough.  I love having plain text files to edit and being able
to use all the regular tools such as diff and CVS to manage changes.  However
there are a whole bunch of little issues that really annoy me.

Mostly this is because I don't understand how docbook works, and I have no idea
how to convert our system from using the scheme-like DTD DSSSL Style Sheet to
using something I do understand.

I'm seriously considering alternate ways to build our course notes, and I'd love
to know what you do, and how that works for you.

All the best,
