A flurry of last-minute small edits this morning (we thought we had it done 6 times, but 7 proved to be the lucky number). The XML 2004 conference subset of DocBook is ready for speakers to use to write their proceedings. And for vendors to use to produce customized editors — tools will be listed on the XML 2004 Conference web site.
In the meantime, if you don’t want to wait for tools to be ready, the schemas and guidelines, complete with individual element documentation, are to be found at Conference Schema and Guidelines. The schema comes in three languages: DTD, RELAX NG, and W3C Schema.
BTW, the speed at which Norm Walsh can crank out updates to customizations of DocBook is mind-boggling.
