Thanks Jeff - I looked at the projects you mentioned. They indeed
provide simple customizations over the default set of stylesheets.
Don't get me wrong - I think the default stylesheets look o.k., just
like LaTeX's stylesheets are hard to beat. I was simply looking for
variety... I mean - docbook is a set of tags that at least
theoretically should be easy to customize into whatever people can
think of, right? In reality all the processed documents I see look
pretty much the same (a slightly different flavor of the default
stylesheet). We tried to put together a totally different set of
stylesheets using hard-coded customization in the default docbook
stylesheets. The result was visually appealing (at least to some), but
FAR from exhausing the full set of Docbook elements. The conclusion
being: it is extremely difficult to do something that would differ
from the default set of stylesheets.
You can see our version of processed customized docbook at:
(it is a large file - over 4.5MB).
