I've put together a 0.0.0.0test1 version of a Press Release
technology, based on a tiny DTD and an XSL stylesheet.  It's not
DocBook, but still tiny enough to be understood or copied at a
glance.

Find a copy at:

	ftp://ftp.megacoder.com/pub/press/

I've also included a dummy release in both PDF and TXT formats, made
using the latest FOP from CVS and my hacked xmlto that uses it.
Lacking that, you should be able to run xsltproc manually.

I didn't quite know what to do about identifying the source of the
press release, or a byline, or the like, so I just left it out.  They
could be added if you have an example; I'm flying blind here.

Cheers
