Wrestling with DocBook

Today, I spend some quality time getting friendly with DocBook and CSS. More specifically, I spent time tuning an XSL stylesheet to customize the way that Eclipse Corner DocBook-structured documents are rendered, and a CSS to customize the way that they’re displayed. In the grand scheme of things, I rate the enjoyment that I get from this sort of activity somewhere below going to the dentist.

However, I think it’s worth it. Perhaps you’ve stumbled upon the new format that I’ve been tinkering with for Eclipse Corner. I’ve only managed to switch over a few of the documents. Tweaking the XSL for DocBook will allow me to move over a bunch of them pretty much in one grand swoop. Thus, while I quite hate fiddling around with XSL documents, the power that keeping the content separate from the presentation provides is appealing.

If you’ve seen Unleashing the Power of Refactoring, then you’ve seen the new format. Like it?

    There are cases where benzoyl peroxide has been reported to irritate and dry out the skin. Dry and irritated skin and hair follicles have the highest susceptibility to new acne, so it is important to have the correct dosage of benzoyl peroxide for your own personal needs. href=http://www.crescatsententia.org>Proactive Acne Treatment has a fairly low level of benzoyl at 2.5%, which helps keep skin irritation to a minimal. There are several products out on the market today, such as NeoBenz Micro that contains higher concentrations of up to 8.5%. Because of this high dose NeoBenz is only available with a prescription.
