All FDP work product is in DocBook XML, for ease of editing and
consistency in rendering. The DocBook XML source can be made into HTML
in a matter of seconds by first getting the fedora-docs distribution.
See the Documentation Guide at:


Simply extract my tarball into the top-level "fedora-docs/" directory,
do "cd eos-guide", and then "make" or "make html".

My purpose in making the XML source available is that if someone finds a
better way of doing the XML coding, or if he has suggestions that fit
the purposes in my foreword, he can edit the XML source directly and
send me a patch. If he does that in HTML, I have to go back and redo all
the tagging again, which is inefficient.
