4 The Linux HOWTO project

Contents of this section

How does this tie into writing HOWTOs? First of all, I'd like to see everyone eventually convert their HOWTOs to SGML using this DTD. This has a number of advantages. First of all, it will allow you to just send me the SGML source, which I'll convert to plain ASCII, TeX, whatever, for posting and archiving. Also, it will give the HOWTOs a common look and feel; any changes that I make to the DTD will be reflected in all of the HOWTOs.

I have set up the linuxdoc DTD to have a certain look and feel. If you want your document to look differently, please let me know, because I'll need to make those changes in the DTD itself. That is, do not modify your version of the DTD or replacement files to get other features in the system. We all must use the same DTD and replacement files or this whole system will break down. If you find bugs in it, or have suggestions for how we can change thing or add/modify features, let me know. I'll be more than happy to accomodate you.
