"In my previous article on DocBook, I covered the basics of using DocBook markup for your documentation projects. Marking up a document in DocBook is only half of the process, however. At some point you'll probably want to share the document with other folks, which means you'll need to convert DocBook to another format. The second step of the process is to run the document files through a parser that will output readable file formats like HTML, PostScript, or RTF. This article will walk you through using the SGMLtools-Lite package to this end."

"SGMLtools-Lite is the Python front-end to SGML processing software. Basically, SGMLtools-Lite simplifies the process of turning DocBook documents into the format, or formats, that you want to distribute."

"If you're a Linux user, depending on your distribution and the options you chose during installation, you may already have the original SGMLtools packages installed on your system. The original SGMLtools project, however, was not maintained for a long period of time, and the SGMLtools-Lite project is the successor to that project."
