Fortunately, there are at least two decent solutions, and one
* Jade/jadetex work as well with DocBook/XML as they do with
SGML, if dvi is an acceptable intermediate form to generate
* PassiveTeX was recently packaged, and within certain
constraints, works pretty well. Today is the first time
I've had success; the author, Sebastian Rahtz, helped me
overcome my problems.
* FOP is also packaged, but I wouldn't advocate using its output.
1. Things which may cause PassiveTeX to fail entirely:
* DocBook tables.
* Nested tags in titles.
