I'll opt for the download. Docbook might not live to survive much longer
so I'll use xmllint which is a definite keeper.

Did some testing, works nice. xmlllint spews out an error and also exit
value of '1' so the script can test for that and abort before the site
is made live. This will stop us having a bad site for x amount of time
during which mirrors could sync it which would cause that mirror to be
broken for a whole lot longer.

I'll add some scripting glue into to use xmllint on
all generated html files.

Thanks Anderson1
