Description: convert DocBook SGML source into HTML using DSSSL
A text-formatting package based on SGML (Standard Generalized Markup
Language), which allows you to produce TeX/DVI/PS/PDF, HTML, RTF, and
plain ASCII (currently via w3m by default) from a single source with
other recommended and suggested packages; due to the flexible nature
of SGML, many other target formats are possible.
This tool can not handle DocBook XML yet. For DocBook SGML only.
HTML can be generated without any other Debian text processing package,
but for the other formats the appropriate packages have to be installed.
You need to install lynx or w3m for ASCII text output (w3m is the default
txt backend). Also jadetex is required for PS and PDF, and
linuxdoc-tools for ld2db conversion.
This system is tailored for writing technical software documentation,
an example of which are the Linux HOWTO documents. However, there is
nothing Linux-specific about this package; it can be used for many
other types of documentation on many other systems. It should be
useful for all kinds of printed and online documentation.
The package was formerly called linuxdoc-sgml because it originates
from the Linux Documentation Project (LDP). The name has been changed
into sgmltools to make it clearer that there is no Linux-specific
stuff included in this package.
This is the latest version of the sgmltools series and the successor of
