Simplified DocBook

This is a community project; it is not an official product of the DocBook Technical Committee.

Over the years, the notion of a "simple" DocBook subset has come up many times. It has been observed that the number of elements in DocBook can be a little overwhelming to the new user.

Simplified DocBook is a small subset of DocBook. The online summary shows just how small this subset is.

This DTD is an attempt to make a small subset of DocBook. The goals of this subset are:

  • Documents written in the subset must be 100% legal DocBook documents.

  • This subset for single documents (articles, white papers, etc.), so there's no need for books or sets, just 'articles'.

  • The markup should be the smallest practical subset, if you need richly structured markup, use full DocBook. In particular, the subset often selects a single element from a family of related elements; for example, programlisting is provided, but screen is not.

  • The DTD must work in online browsers (it's XML not SGML). It must be small enough to download more-or-less painlessly.
