This message is just to know your oppinion.
I finished the DSSSL book before summer, and it is already printed. I wil=
post some official messages when Kluwer people tell me to do so.
After delivering my last revision, they asked me if I could write some ot=
book related to the same area, because they wanted to offer more on the
same theme. They already published a HyTime book in 1994, and now in 2003=
they have published a DSSSL book. They asked me if I considered OpenJade
as a possibility for writing a book. At the time I didn't find enough mat=
but with the time I have been thinking that there is not only OpenJade,
but also OpenSp, and there is the Architectural forms support, and also
an API that allows using OpenJade from another programs.
Do you people consider that OpenJade has enough entity as to write a book=
The next question is even more important
Does anyone of you have the knowledge and interest to do so? Cristian and=
me we could cover the explanation of OpenJade part, but I am not too much=
Replies are welcome.

Unfortunately some parts of AF support are broken (tests are enabled
within the release branch).

Probably. There are enough books talking about XML, though. No, I
neither have time to work on such a project nor I do know enough about
it; I'm not a hacker, thus I'm not familiar with the API.

I'd be interested. Right now, I'm working on an article for
linux.com about using XML in publishing using DSSSL. I personally have
some experience, but it would be nice to have a good book on it,
especially about OpenJade specifically. It took me a looong time to find
out how to force simple-page-sequence to start on the recto side of the
page. There's still a lot I don't know.
Anyway, I have an interest.
