[Home]Writing Documentation

HomePage

Use DocBook XML format. Use <book> as the top tag.

Processing

Process with db2pdf, db2html, ... tools (available from docbook-utils debian package)

Internationalization

Use standard XML entities (ž, etc.) for non-ASCII characters. DocBook? files in encodings other than iso-8859-1 don't work correctly.

Images

Use

 <mediaobject>
    <imageobject><imagedata fileref="Form.png" format="PNG"/></imageobject>
    <imageobject><imagedata fileref="Form.pdf" format="EPS"/></imageobject>
 </mediaobject>

To insert pictures.

You get "Form.pdf" from "Form.png" with:

 convert Form.png Form.eps
 epstopdf Form.eps Form.pdf

The resulting DocBook? file will convert correctly to PDF with db2pdf, but not to Postscript with db2ps. To convert to postscript, replace "Form.pdf" with "Form.eps" in the example above.

Links

Use the following syntax:

 <ulink url="http://www.tablix.org">Tablix</ulink>
