Hi Javier,

first of all, I'd greatly appreciate a book about DSSSL. I remember
learning DSSSL from the standard wasn't exactly a smooth experience,
so any book about the topic would make it a lot more accessible to new

Some companies do this kind of dead tree plus web publishing. Look at
O'Reilly (http://www.ora.com) and NewRiders
(http://www.newriders.com). I have never attempted to publish a book
with either of them (actually, I've never attempted to publish a book
at all...), but I know that at least O'Reilly is pretty picky about
the authors. If you're not a native speaker you lose unless you are
either extremely good or hire a native speaker as a co-author (who
would have to polish the language). I think you should still go ahead
and try simply because there's not much out there about DSSSL.
