Dexter is a tool that allows users to define extended attributes which can be associated with descriptors and editors. These attributes can be embedded into any well-formed XML document. The resulting embellished document, the 'source', is then input to the dexter engine. This will generate one or more XSLT stylesheets describing the input document interpolating editor modifications and any instructions specified by the descriptors. As dexter's operations are specified exclusively with extended attributes, all but the most unforgiving of XML content viewers will continue to see the decorated source exactly as the designer saw it before.
The XCB library provides an interface to the X Window System protocol, designed to replace the Xlib interface. It has several advantages over Xlib, including size (small library and lower memory footprint), latency hiding (batch several requests and wait for the replies later), direct protocol access (one-to-one mapping between interface and protocol), thread support (access XCB from multiple threads, with no explicit locking), and easy creation of new extensions (automatically generates its interface from machine-parsable XML protocol descriptions). Xlib can also use XCB as a transport layer, allowing software to make requests and receive responses with both, which eases porting to XCB. However, client programs, libraries, and toolkits will gain the most benefit from a native XCB port.
xcb-proto contains descriptions of the X Window System core protocol and selected extensions in an XML-based data format. They are used by the X C Binding (XCB) library to generate much of its code, but you can also use these descriptions for other purposes, such as decoding the X protocol or building X Window System bindings for other languages.
The docbookm package is contributed with LayManSys and contains very simple XSLT drivers for generating XHTML chunks from DocBook XML. This package does not require an installation; you only have to unzip the package's contents into a directory of your choice and start using it. There is no special documentation available. Use the file abstract.xsl for transforming an abstract and section.xsl for transforming sections. All other .xsl files are only includes needed by those two.
The docbooktoc.xsl is an XSLT file for generating an XHTML table of contents from DocBook XML documents. It is used by the LayManSys project for the documentation. docbooktoc generates an XHTML document containing the books' meta information (in DocBook XML, this is the subnode bookinfo) and then lists all of the books' chapters and sections in an ordered list. The meta information is both used for generating the head as well as the document header (in the XHTML body), and the output is the same as what the DocBook XSLT driver for XHTML generates.
The xsd2db package is used for converting XML Schema Definition files into DocBook XML code. The transformer can also be used to generate DocBook XML from plain XML files. It marks up tag names, attribute names, attribute values, and annotation, if parsing XSD code. The resulting DocBook XML code may be styled so that you have syntax highlighted XML code.
