The Unofficial Revised Slackware Book Project Update
 
SlackBook Update

Calling all Slackers! We're approaching what you might call a "release
client" status for the slackbook. Every chapter is now in some state of
completeness. Now I really need careful readers to double-check what
I and others have put here and look for errors in the discussion and
point out typos. You can mail me directly at alan AT lizella DOT net
or join the very low-trafic slackbook mailing list.

(This webforum won't let me post a URL, so just prepend properly to the following line.)
wombat.san-francisco.ca.us/mailman/listinfo/slackbook

At this time I know for a fact that all the
navigation headers and footers on each page are inconsistant. Some
links may still be broken. If you can point out these discrepencies by
all means notify us.

Thank you all very much.

I believe that is the plan, but that Pat was waiting for the Revised book to be finished first.

If someone converts the revised book into DocBook XML then it can be converted into txt, html, pdf, etc...

Trouble with that is we never recived the original SGML source, and we never really intended for it to be anything beyond a regular HTML web page (the current HTML doesn't even quite comply to w3c standards yet). I or some one else may in the future convert it to SGML, but that's not a huge priority for me right now.

On the other hand, anyone know of any good tools to turn HTML into SGML? :-)

Don't know how good it is: http://www.abc.se/~m9339/prog/html2sgml.html

Looks old. Couldn't find the package there, but I found it here: http://fresh.t-systems-sfr.com/linux....3.tar.gz.html

There are also plenty of links on the DocBook for converters wiki which may be of varying use:

DocBook XML is considered to be the future though, not SGML.
