Overview

html2db.xsl converts an XHTML source document into a Docbook output document. It provides features for customizing the generation of the output, so that the output can be tuned by annotating the source, rather than hand-editing the output. This makes it useful in a processing pipeline where the source documents are maintained in HTML, although it can be used as a one-time conversion tool too.

This document is an example of html2db.xsl used in conjunction with the Docbook XSL stylesheets. The source file is an XHTML file with some embedded Docbook elements and processing instructions. html2db.xsl compiles it into a Docbook document, which can be used to generate this output file (which includes a Table of Contents), a chunked HTML file, a PDF, or other formats.
