Another month, another diary entry. Today, I started trying to figure out DocBook to no avail. I am planning to write a "book" about ClanLib. I downloaded jade (Windows binary, for now) and discovered I had to find and install three other things, each from separate sites and not necessarily ready to use: the docbook dtd, iso entities, and DSSSL stylesheets. Had to hack various files to get them to recognize each other and everything is still all screwed up. I must have done something wrong, but the error messages certainly don't help. I'm over my head. I'll probably figure it out soon enough. I'm going to try installing Debian at home (my Mandrake/GNOME setup is all screwed up at the moment) and I am assuming that if I tell Debian to install jade it would automatically set everything up correctly. We shall see!
