XMLWriter doesn't seem to be usable with DocBook 4.2.
I just downloaded XMLWriter 2.12 demo and tried to use
it with DocBook.  It took several *minutes* to load the
DocBook DTD into the TagBar.  And after it did, the TagBar
and the popup Entry Helper don't show all the allowable
DocBook elements for a given context.

I'm using Windows XP, 1.2 Ghz, 256 MB machine.
I've got the latest MSXML 4.0 as it recommends.

You must find it is more usable than my experience, so
I'm wondering what's different with your setup or usage.
