Hi, Nick,

Yes, I did see that, and I did succeed in creating a DocBook file by
exporting to texi and then converting with makeinfo. It's a bit
unwieldy, but it will do in a pinch. I'm not sure how this compares with

I'd really like to be able to set things like doctype, etc.
automatically, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do that in the org
file so that it would survive getting passed through texi into docbook
xml (or pandoc, for that matter).
