First, I must say that LyX has come a long way and is quite
an impressive "editing utility" (hmmm, What do you call it? :)
It's claim of DocBook support brought me back to check it
out just yesterday. When creating a new file from a template,
you can select DocBook. When I tried to view the document (xdvi),
it failed in processing looking for sgml-tools.
Therefore, I believe that LyX supports DocBook indirectly
