Thanks for the help on what is appropriate etiquette.

>By the looks of it, Leo is GUI ?

Leo is a GUI in the sense that it displays nodes hierarchically just like
Windows explorer displays folders/directories hierarchically.

I am a novice at DocBook, Leo, literate programming and the like. The best
thing would be to look at the Leo doco "Chapter 6: Leo and Literate
Programming" at

Some are interested in literate programming in general, so there may
be some interest, but I guess it's low.

On topic though, so why not!

By the looks of it, Leo is GUI? I'm not sure how that helps
for litprog?
I use emacs, or (a java environment, then paste/include into emacs
for the Docbook)
