Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: best tool for docbook?

I personally like emacs + psgml.  But that may not be the best choice for 
your target audience.  I knew Emacs before I ever heard of SGML/XML, so the 
learning curve for the editor per sec was, shall we say, short.  But Emacs 
is not an easy editor to introduce to non-programmers.
