docbook2epub question 1: What's a DocBook?
Going through old links I found what might be a series of interesting conversion tools under the title "epub-tools". Hmmm (says I to meself as is my want) ... word conversion ... RTF conversion ... DocBook conversion,... who?
Googling DocBook found me a very comprehensive website that was like opening up a tomb with a library of unintelligable books written in an archaic version of a known language.
This might be a little OT for this forum - and if there is a better subforum that I should move this query to, please tell me - but can anyone enlighten me as to whether this is viable option worth studying as a useful form of digital publishing or is it one of those signposts to a road not travelled that one finds on the 'net every so often - interesting only from a historical standpoint?

I believe Docbook is used in more technical documentation like manuals. It is not used that much all around.

There is a DocBook page on our wiki. It could use a bit of expansion.
