Summary
Can we convert xhtml to wikibook xml
Type

Description
Can we and should we try to convert xhtml to tbook, rather than pdf2you’s current xhtml straight to `LATEX conversion. The problem we are trying to get around is bad xhtml code causing `LATEX to die without advising the user that it has done so, or giving any clue where the problem might be.
How “lossy” would such a conversion be? Is it a sensible thing to contemplate.

Proposed solution
We have hooked in a dtd validator to discover bad xhtml earlier in the process. Perhaps if the validator fails, we stop and issue a warning or error message. Alternatively, we could consider transforming xhtml to LATEX using XSLT, ie convert the tbook transformation to work off xhtml (if that’s possible). This has been tried before with limited success and the project is no longer active. A more recent transform seems more flexible. See also the book microformat.
