FWIW, here's a shell script that uses xsltproc to render DocBook XML
into HTML. You'll need to change the STYLESHEET variable to point at
whatever XML stylesheet you're using. Invoke this script like this:
bash$ db2html mydoc.xml
rm -f "$TMPFILE"
xsltproc --output "$TMPFILE" "$STYLESHEET" "$@"
if [ "$OSTYPE" = "cygwin" ]
if [ -f "$TMPFILE" ]
messagebox db2html "No HTML file produced due to errors!"
echo "HTML file is $TMPFILE."
