I have done some translation for the Microsoft compiler a couple of
years ago but they were more like corrections to an already auto-
translated text. I am fine with any method that is suitable - granted,
I have not worked with DocBook XML yet. However, not knowing something
does not prevent one from learning it right?

It is your book and thus, if you let me know what the best way is from
your perspective, I will simply follow along the line....certainly it
should be easy for the both of us. I am currently on a business
trip....I will take a closer look to the amount of content as well as
your preferred *result* format over the weekend.

Ciao, Andreas
