This module allows the export of Drupal books, in DocBook XML format. It
is assumed that the input is HTML; this input is cleaned using Tidy to
generate XHTML, which is then transformed via XSLT into DocBook.


The module assumes that you are running PHP5, and have Tidy support

To Do

This will enable publication to PDF via processing pipelines involving
XSLT, FO and image conversion tools. I expect to package configuration,
instructions and integration for standard toolsets as a separate module.


The output transformation is not terribly well tested yet. It's not
complete, though it should cover most of the commonly used HTML

Please report bugs via Drupal's issue tracker:


The XSLT script is based on HTML2DocBook, by Jeff Beal, as found on
