That is of course why it was a random assumption. :)

Docbook SGML was one of the formats I was considering for the FAQ
'source'. I see now on the list however that people are working on a
special FAQ SGML format, it'd be good to hook up with those people too.
Find out what is going on with that and report back to the list, I
suppose. :)

As I mentioned earlier on the list, info on Docbook SGML can be found


Good luck, and thanks!
