I just took another look at that DocBook reference and got overwhelmed
again by references to using multiple programs that do not run in
Windows, SVN, stylesheets, XML, etc., which reminds me of why I have
been submitting my documentation requests (several of those 45) in plain
text.  That seems to be where they end, because I am not ready to spend
several weeks learning how to get those programs running, etc.  If
someone knows how to convert text into appropriate XML with valid tags,
etc., I wish they would go ahead and do it.  Then I could let loose with
a whole bunch of additional documentation bugs.
