thanx for this advice (and others'): i've run into more Docbook stuff
& spent a frustrating couple of hours trying to do something with it
(Mandrake Linux 9.0rc1).

'openjade -d /usr/share/sgml/docbook/dsssl-stylesheets/docbook.dsl
  -t sgml file.docbook > file.d1' creates a text file of sorts,
but i can't find any way to create an HTML file.  in fact,
it wb quite easy to write a Sed script to convert the tags,
but there must be some straightforward way to simply read Docbook files:
what are users expected to do with them?  surely, people don't convert
 25  .docbook files individually with some conversion program?

i've looked at Sgmltools (1998 abandoned) & Sgmltools-lite (won't run);
there's Docbook2X , which wouldn't compile.

i just checked Google's list for 'db2html', which is mainly complaints.

does anyone have further suggestions?
