    An alternative way to generate PDF from DocBook is to use DBLatex (http://sourceforge.net/projects/dblatex/). It’s advantages, from my point of view:

    * It can produce very high quality documents, using LaTeX;
    * It can use various features automatically provided by LaTeX (for example syntax highlighting of code snippets, line automatic numbering, auto-wrapping of long lines);
    * Easy to embed vector graphics (SVG, PS, PDF);
    * Written in Python and uses only LaTeX, no need to install Java – this is important for me, because I don’t have/use Java at all and FOP has a lot of dependencies.
