DNS change has been completed. We have quite a few new and updated documents; see "Latest Document Updates" for a list of HOWTOs modified over the last month.

Jorge Godoy (godoy@conectiva.com) has prepared the "Using DocBook HOWTO". This is an excellent resource for both authors that are beginning to use DocBook SGML, or those that are already well-versed in its usage.

Jorge is in the process of developing this document, and invites you to provide feedback (please provide feedback directly to him).
