Are you saying that you also expereince issues when you upload .html files with moodle into the resource directories? Do you get the same garbled output?
regarding DocBook: I use the hand-chisel method. with JEdit a Open Source editor that is (can-be) XML and DTD aware. it is a slow and tedious process. But since our technical writers are not familiar with the Docbook tags I am adding them in manually once we have approved the text.
As you may know, Docbook is meant to relieve the writer from wysiwyg markup issues, he/she needs only concentrate on the content, and use tags to correctly identify what sort of content it is, headings, paragraphs, programlistings, etc. (For those of you who does not know docbook it uses more than a 100 tags for markup purposes. The beauty of Docbook is that you can generate html pdf and postscript [printable] files from a single source file. No issues with different versions of your documentation floating around. Theoretically it should also cut down on development time, since the writer does not have to worry about text sizes and fonts etc. But in practise this only occurs when the writer is familiar with the tags, and has nimble fingers!
Marcus, if you are experiencing the same garbled output in some of your HTML resource files, that you uploaded via moodle (add --> resource --> Uploaded file) please let me know wether or not this was alos on a Windows system, then I can rest easy since the live system will not reside on a M$ server. else I will continue worrying for a bit, if that is allright with you guys.
(Hmmm a little verbose. maybe I do not want to go back to my marking up work !!)
