Subject: Re: [docbook] Configure Emacs to autocomplete the tags

Hi Dave,

Really I got scared:^) with so many configuration commands.

I'm a simple user of Docbook to edit the pages to my site www.c2o.pro.br

But I don't know the configuration detailsof Docbook tools.

I will test the Markus's suggestion to use the .emacs file of my old installation with squeeze.

Thank you,

Yes - but it's such a hard task for the first time Markus?
Especially if you're new to it all.

(Aside) I'm still sad that James Clarks nxml-mode won't run
and we're left with the 'proper' one, which is basically

You'll need to tell emacs (nxml-mode)
1. Where your schema-locating file is

  (setq rng-schema-locating-files '("/sgml/schemas.xml"))

2. In that file, where to find the docbook *(rnc) schema

<typeId id="DocBook"
   <documentElement localName="book"


3. What associations to make (e.g. the root elements you'll be using)

(setq auto-mode-alist

'("\\.xml\\'" . nxml-mode)


(defun bind-nxml-mode-keys ()
   (define-key nxml-mode-map (kbd "<C-return>") 'completion-at-point)
   ;; add further customizations here

I somehow assumed that the OP would reuse his .emacs which apparently had
worked in a previous installation. But you may be right, he'll have to add
this stuff if he started from scratch. I prefer to keep backups of my
.emacses to avoid this toil.
