DocBook stylesheets

The DocBook stylesheets are a set of stylesheets for use with an XSLT engine like xsltproc or Saxon. The stylesheets can transform DocBook XML documents (including documents using DocBook 5.0 and earlier versions) into output formats like HTML, PDF, various help formats, and the ePub ebook format. The stylesheets are open source software maintained by the DocBook community.
