New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
A friend of mine wants to publish a manual for his CMS software package that is being written in DocBook XML. I did a search here but nothing turned up.
Since I use LaTeX primarily, I was interested in doing it this way, but it seems quite complicated. ConTeXt seems to be better set up for this but I would have to learn a whole new language; I can't even figure out how to change fonts in this system. I also tried some experiments in InDesign to get it to work but that seems hopeless...
So does anyone have any experience with typesetting DocBook? Keep in mind that the manual will likely be over 400 letterpaper-sized pages. I would appreciate any advice you can offer.
