README for the Simplified DocBook XML V220.127.116.11 DTD
This is a simplified version of the DocBook XML V4.1.2 DTD. This
DTD is my attempt to make a small subset of DocBook. I tried to
achieve the following goals:
* Documents written in the subset must be 100% legal DocBook XML
* This is for small documents, articles and the like, so
there's no need for 'book's or 'set's, just 'article's.
* The markup should be the smallest practical subset, if you
need richly structured markup, use DocBook or DocBook XML.
* The result is roughly "HTML-level markup in DocBook", but I
didn't set out explicitly to produce that result.
* The DTD must work in IE5 (it's XML not SGML). It should be
small enough to download more-or-less painlessly.
* There should be a CSS stylesheet for it (mine's pretty lame).
* There should be an XSL stylesheet for it. Since I'm in the
somewhat privileged position of knowing how many changes are
coming, I'm going to wait until after the next draft ;-).
Instead of DocBook's 350+ elements, this DTD has just over 100.
