"DocBook, a SGML DTD for technical writing and
documentation, has been widely adopted by a number of organizations
and authors. Many commercial and free tools support it, and the
specification is under active development. DocBook: The
Definitive Guide is the official documentation."

"The bulk of this book is a reference section which lists
DocBook elements alphabetically. Each element has a content model
lifted straight from the DTD, a list of applicable attributes, a
list of parameter entities in which the element occurs, a
description of what is is and where it might be used, processing
expectations, and examples of its use mentioning any gotchas. Some
elements are very simple, while elements higher in the hierarchy
have much more complex requirements and nuances. Deprecated
elements are marked with the appropriate version of the
specification, with valid replacements suggested."
