RELAX NG because of its explanation of elements which are shown as a tool 
tip in some XML editors (for example, in oXygen) and for its ease of use.

I don't use the other schema types as the are a) not official, and b) are 
limited in their expressive power (especially the DTD).

- Emacs + nXML for the one and only(?) open source editor for
  editing with RELAX NG schema
- oXygen for its different editing modes (like the author mode as a
  kind of WYSYWYG), XSLT debugging and lots of other good features

Normally I use xmllint to validate my DocBook4 documents. However, it 
seems it has some problems with the RELAX NG schema of DocBook5. So I use 
it mainly to resolve XIncludes (rarely XPointers) and validate it through 
jing or msv.
