I am not sure if that URL will remain the same every time the archive is 
rebuild. I should look into that, I think it will, but one never knows. If 
not, go to /alfsdocs/ and scroll  down to the near the bottom and read the 
thread I started called "DocBook"

I based that thread on DocBook-3.1 and openjade. DocBook-4.1 is out already 
(no, 3.1 isn't that old, even though the major version number changed. When I 
was writing about 3.1, docbook-4.0 was still beta)

True, but other docs will be written in DocBook, so if you plan on helping 
out wiht documentation or whatever, it wouldn't hurt to have an sgml parsing 
environment installed.
