Re: New recruit, help needed in choosing project

My understanding was that DocBook was not simply a set of tools but also
its own DTD specification with its own elements, separate from XML.  

In that case would I be wrong in saying that to make full use of DocBook
one would need to original sgml file that the current xml file was
created from?  Without that wouldn't you be restricted to simply writing
XML since that's the only format you're given it in?  I may have missed
it but I did not see an sgml file in the cvs module for gedit, only an
xml file.
