There are GUI tools out there with Docbook support, but I'm not sure there's
many good F/OSS ones (beyond vim or emacs with an appropriate set of macros,
that is). Rumour has it that OpenOffice.org will be able to read/write
Docbook XML format sometime soon, but I haven't looked into it.
If free-as-in-beer versions of commercial software are fine with you,
there's the XMLMind editor (http://www.xmlmind.com/xmleditor/). Our tech
writers at work seem to like it, and it handles Docbook just fine.
