They seem even :-) less documented than the DSSSL ones, which I use

Here is what I see in my catalog (automatically created when I install
the Debian docbook-xml package):
-- START SGML CATALOG ENTRY FOR PACKAGE docbook-xml --
-- DocBook XML 3.1.3 DTD --

It depends on your operating system, since there is no standard SGML
environment and, for most systems, you have to do a
<emphasis>lot</emphasis> of work by yourself. For Debian, see
http://www.debian.org/~bortz/SGML-HOWTO/ which covers in detail (I
believe) the subject of DocBook/XML.
