Hello Robert,

I feel at home with vi for docbook and wouldn't mind a better tool to edit
documents. Currently  I use vi to edit docbook documents and use the docbook
utils to convert them to the necessary formats. Using vi and rendering with
docbook-tools is laborious and time consuming.

I'm curious about the development environment of other writers as well and
wonder if there are any better tools/methods for document generation.
