Documentation

We need to create some documentation for a project using DocBook, its nice if you are creating a large document with lots of different authors and input from several files (sources, messages, examples etc). Downside is its based on XML, so we are looking at Publican to help simply the job. Publican is used to produce all the docs for Red Hat linux and several other projects.

Publishing with DocBook XML

  • Books
  • Articles
  • Papers
  • Multi-volume sets
