To prove this statement, I've created a simple source tree that can
be used to automate the whole process:

z3lb-docbook/
|-- Makefile
|-- html-styles.xsl
|-- src/
|   |-- intro.xml
|   |-- new_chapter.py
|   |-- z3livebook.css
|   `-- z3livebook.xml
`-- tex-styles.xsl

Just run `make html` or `make pdf` to produce HTML or PDF respectively.

Dependencies (as Debian packages):
   o docbook-xml (pdf+html)
   o tetex-bin (pdf)
   o xsltproc (pdf+html)
   o docbook-xsl (html)

I'm using a similar setup to write my diploma thesis, so far it
works quite well.

Cheers,
Igor
