Can I see a finished renderring not quite part of SVN yet.

You mentioned you had to pre-process the scripts (ampersands, 
greater-than symbols and the like). This'll of course need to be 
automated as you also mentioned.

This would means we have two versions of each bootscript - the actual 
script and a book formatted version thereof.

To help with the automation it may become necessary to make this process 
part of a Makefile target which processes the bootscript files and 
outputs to a new file location. Perhaps the processed files should live 
within the LFS BOOK repository (ie in the appendix directory).

I'm not sure if that's the best way to go but just an idea.

I'd like to see first what it'd look like as an end product. The actual 
implementation of automating the process would be the next discussion.
