Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] DocBook editor

Hi Lars,

The DocBook roundtripping system aims to use a word processor (MS  
Word, Apple Pages, Open Office) as the front-end editor for DocBook  
documents. Naturally, there are some limitations but it can handle a  
useful subset of DocBook.

It works by using XSLT to convert he word processor's XML to DocBook,  
and vice-versa. Accordingly, you some sort of framework to run the  
transformations. I'm working on that too.
