Well, I have 248 .dsl files on my hard drive, and they're not all
copies of the DocBook stylesheets (although some are customisations of
the DocBook stylesheets).  I have produced DSSSL stylesheets for
Mulberry's internal use -- we deliver DTD documentation in multiple
formats using DSSSL and use DSSSL to generate formatted output in
training sessions -- as well as stylesheets for conference papers, for
a technical journal, for clients, and for the DSSSL Documentation

I agree that it is difficult to find much information about using
DSSSL, but I am at a loss for what to do to get more information
sources about DSSSL.
