This is for all of those DocBookers out there.
I searched the archives because I'm pretty sure this has been covered but I can't find anything.

I've been trying to set up a docbook tool chain on a WinXP machine and I am experiencing ..... well, difficulties. I tried following the directions in DocBook: The Definitive Guide but ran into problems at the Insalling the Modular Stylesheets step. I'm also in the process of trying to set this up following Markus Hoenicka's SGML for NT directions. I believe Jade is the culprit in both cases.

So, my questions to you are what does your tool chain look like (and what software versions are you using), what instructions did you follow to set it up, and what tweaking did you have to do in order to get up and running? If you can point me to a different tutorial that would also be great. Your solution can either be commercial or free.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
