1) use db2html ( comes with docbook-toys

I have found one of the problems in sgmltools reading the howto
(/usr/share/doc/howto/en/html/mini/DocBook-Install/using.html). It seems
that sgmltools needs some environment variables:

They are commented by default so uncomment them and your SGML variables
are set including jade :-)

It seems to me that the sgmltools are very broken in suse 7.3... I wonder
if they ever tested it :-? I'll check when I update to 8.1 soon what

They are sure at least I have been using them since 7.2 and had not had
a problem (except Turkish language support which was fixed by me adding
the translations and fixing the for the correct SP_ENCODING

you may get the newer versions from

and if you want to use Lyx with Docbook check
