2.1.2. Requirements

2.1.2.1. Mandatory

Because this is a customization of the DocBook DSSSL stylesheets you need the DocBook DTD itself and Norman Walsh's DSSSL stylesheets. To create HTML output you need of course Jade or OpenJade.

2.1.2.2. Optional

The package contains also separate stylesheet files for creating print output. For this to work you need a working TeX installation including jadetex.
