Robert Stayton, bobs@sagehill.net, Chair
Richard Hamilton, hamilton@xmlpress.net, Secretary

Table of Contents


The OASIS DocBook TC is chartered to develop and maintain the DocBook family of specifications and to continue to support its ever growing user base. In particular, the XML and SGML DocBook schemas, a suite of extension modules, and a simplified authoring subset of DocBook. The Technical Committee plans to support a variety of schema languages and may develop additional modules and derived document types.
