I'm an IT manager and I'm trying to move my group away from creating
documentation in Word to a more Web-friendly environment, such as by using
DocBook. I've spent some free time over the last few weeks investigating my
options and am at present working my way through a tutorial I found linked
from the OASIS site for setting up Emacs on Windows NT (by Markus
Hoenicka). I'm actually using XEmacs, so there are some slight differences
I've also just downloaded a trial version of XMetaL, as I saw a note on the
OASIS site that indicated DocBook support "out of the box".
I am interested in feedback from those using DocBook on Windows as to which
environment they feel is most straightforward for a bunch of
non-professional writers. Secondly, XMetaL doesn't seem to support DocBook
(although its help uses the term DocBook in what seems a generic sense,
rather than relating to the DocBook DTD). Is it as straightforward as
applying the DocBook download archive to XMetaL to provide DocBook support?
Thanks in advance,
