Thanks for your input on the limitations of DocBook.  Being rather new
to DocBook, I wasn't aware of these limitations that you pointed out.  I
understand that DocBook is customizable (although its not DocBook any
more once you customize it).  What do you recommend? Is there a better
alternative to DocBook, or could we just customize it to meet our needs?
