This book was prepared with

jade 1.2.1-28
openjade 1.3
jadetex 3.12-2

The PDF version was generated from introbook.sgml to introbook.pdf by the following series of command line arguments using Debian Woody:

First, the index was prepared with…

%  perl /usr/bin/ -N -o index.sgml
%  jade -t sgml \
    -d /usr/share/sgml/docbook/stylesheet/\
dsssl/modular/html/docbook.dsl -v html-index \
%  perl /usr/bin/ -o index.sgml HTML.index

Second, the document was processed to introbook.pdf (where introbook.dsl is a local stylesheet) with a multi-step process…

%  openjade -V tex-backend -t tex -d introbook.dsl \
%  pdftex "&pdfjadetex" introbook.tex
%  pdftex "&pdfjadetex" introbook.tex
%  pdftex "&pdfjadetex" introbook.tex

Processing to introbook.html had the command line argument…

%  jade \
    -c  /usr/share/sgml/docbook/stylesheet/  \
dsssl/modular/html/docbook.dsl  \
    -t sgml introbook.sgml

Stylesheets, formatting, and help were made possible by docbook-apps mailing list and Norman Walsh's DocBook: The Definitive Guide published by O'Reilly. DocBook SGML is available at OASIS—SGML. Norman Walsh's text is a bit outdated, so check the more recent version on the Web at DocBook: The Definitive Guide. When these resources proved insufficient, John Archie provided the necessary magic to remove the rust from the SGML tool-chain.

As additional features are developing, emphasis in DocBook is shifting to using the XSL-FO language to create PDF from XML, instead of the process used here. See Dave Pawson's XSL-FO, Sebastopol, CA: O'Reilly, 2002, and Bob Stayton's DocBook XSL: The Complete Guide, Santa Cruz, CA: Sagehill, 2003.
