Thanks. I'd like to share the book with as many people as possible, and I
would love se see it translated to other languages and get contributions when
time comes and I have done the basics and defined the concept for the book.
But I am not sure if I like to publish it in Wiki-format. Please tell me why
I should prefer this format.
The Danish edition is written in DocBook/XML and therefore published in
different formats such as PDF, HTML, Palm-format, PostScript etc. Is is
placed in a CVS-directory so contributions from different sources is possible
with revision control. You can see it here:
I am not sure which format to do the English edition in, but I guess it is
going to be DocBook/XML ahain - but I might start it up in LyX and later
But as said... Before working to much on the English edition I need to know if
a book like this already exists.
