Hi Tong,

While it is true that neither NCBI Book nor BITS are in scope for the
JATS Preview XSLT, this doesn't mean they are not useful. The JATS
XSLT provides probably about 80% of what you need. I say go for it.

I have this problem on my radar, as also I want to extend and update
the oXygen framework I have made for JATS (to support BITS, with nicer
UIs etc.). There is much to be done. I have a github repository at but so far it
has nothing book-related, only new and better Oasis table support,
which now amazingly works even on tables with more than six or seven
cells in a row. (Also the Schematron support for Oasis tables is very

(If anyone wishes to make pull requests from this, let me know. BITS
is in scope. :-)

However, I have lots to do, and no BITS project directly lined up
(which would make this easier). It would certainly be good for users
of BITS, and not so difficult, I think.

Cheers, Wendell
