Subject: Re: manual: little errors?

I've been browsing around a bit, and failed to find a good explanation of
the benefits of XML DocBook over SGML DocBook.  Could you expand a bit on
why we should switch?

* XML DocBook allows to build Windows HTML help files (*.chm)

* The PDF created from XML DocBook contains a tree-view TOC

* With the SGML DocBook I had a lot of problems to get it working,
I think it is hopeless on Windows (Unless you're a real SGML expert).
With the XML DocBook, you just install the EDE DocBook Environment
on Windows and it works.

I meant to file a bug report earlier (and i will do soon) but i was
wondering why we have both a /doc and /help directory, and hopefully we
can merge them and make things a little cleaner.
