A plug-in that adds in features to the existing XML capability of  
InDesign to support rich, cross media workflows. It provides a  
mechanism for resolving media references in imported XML and placing  
in-line graphics referenced within the XML, along with converting  
between InDesign native tables and XML-based tables. It is set up to  
work with XML written in Simplified DocBook XML

Disclaimer: I haven't tried it myself but might help with what you're  
trying to do.
