LinuxDoc is an SGML DTD which is similar to DocBook. It was created by Matt Welsh and version 1.1 was announced [1] in 1994. It is primarily used by the Linux Documentation Project. The DocBook SGML tags are often longer than the equivalent LinuxDoc tags.[2] LinuxDoc has a more succinct DTD than DocBook and users of small to medium size projects[3] have found that it suits their purposes better than DocBook. The Debian distribution of Linux has a linuxdoc-tools package.
