    Yeah - this would be PERFECT...

    The person that actually developed those customized stylesheets
    (Staszek Osinski) wasn't too determined to support everything... and
    the customization as I said was a lot of hacking anyway... But you are
    certainly right - I'm sure many elements could be reused. It would
    still take a loong time to develop a full coherent stylesheet...

    Thanks for response, Jeff. I appreciate and I think it'll be a
    valuable piece of information for XEP-docbook users too.
