The docs are built using the sgmltools-lite (or something like that)
package. I have looked at the problem and I think it's a bug in sgmltools
(or one of its dependencies) and not in the source SGML. I'm running
Gentoo. If anybody can build the HTML from the SGML without errors on
their system I'd be grateful if you could let me know.

Docbook won't be used for PyQt4 - I'll use ReST as SIP does at the moment.
