The DSSSL spec I use from day-to-day is an HTML file that I created from
the PDF for DSSSL using a tool from Adobe. (what an embarrasing
admittance!) It isn't perfect, but it works pretty well. I don't know if
I could find either the PDF file or the Adobe tool, now, but they are
surely both still around. Someone will surely know about the former, and
the latter is somewhere on Adobe's site.
