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.
