others/developers providing information for the guide or would I be a

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.
