I use Emacs for writing and editing, although I truly wish someone had
time or personnel to invest in better XSLT/styling for OpenOffice.org,
so habitual GUI users could write a document in a Writer template and
then convert it to DocBook XML without a lot of retagging needed later.

I like Inkscape a LOT for drawing and diagramming, especially since SVGs
are XML and can be embedded easily in DocBook AIUI.
