Re:  Writing stylesheets for Web and PDF output?
Hi Dan,

I am working in a similar environment, except we use 2 different sets of
stylesheets, but have many imported/included stylesheets shared across the
IETM and PDF. Like you, we have a S1000D input to publish a MIL-STD-40051
output. As you know the 40051 output covers a number of different Technical
Manuals (PDF output). We have over 15 Publication Modules which share over
1000 data modules. We use a "pipeline" approach like you do. We have been
doing this for 2 years with great success. Managing 2 sets of stylesheets for
2 completely different outputs is manageable. In fact, I prefer it this way.
But trying to great a single set of stylesheets to output 2 completely
different outputs (IETM or PDF) would be a nightmare to manage (IMO).

requirement is to make it more like the IETM output.
