Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: best tool for docbook?
/ Dennis Grace <email@example.com> was heard to say: | I actually prefer writing and editing in markup, but emacs--even with | psgmlx and the Windows settings--is a drag. I agree that emacs+psgml (or | psgmlx) offers a solution, especially for those who can't or don't want to | work in Windows, but I certainly wouldn't classify the combination as one | of the "best tools for DocBook." Which emphasizes the point that the choice of authoring environments depends greatly on the style of documentation being produced and the authoring population. I do think Emacs/PSGML is one of the best tools for editing XML (DocBook or otherwise). In fact, I never use anything else. OTOH, when I was at Arbortext, I routinely annoyed sales and marketing folks by demoing Epic with tags turned on. And stumbling around like I was looking for a black cat in a coal mine when I turned them off. So I'm weird. Sue me. :-) Be seeing you, norm -- Norman Walsh <firstname.lastname@example.org> | A man can believe a considerable http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/ | deal of rubbish, and yet go about Chair, DocBook Technical Committee | his daily work in a rational and | cheerful manner.--Norman Douglas
