O'Reilly were quite happy to take my docbook input.
The "O'Reilly" version was minimally different.

I had hopes of Word-2003 for that Simon.
For some inexplicable reason, any word styling I apply to
a block of text tagged with b or similar, isn't uniformally
applied to other b tagged content.
   I guess MS haven't got XML yet?
Styling based on tagging was my hope, for admin people without
any exposure to XML.
   Its a start, but 3/10 MS.
