[docbook] DocBook and Publishing Software

Hello all,

The company I work for is making decisions about its plans for future docbook publishing and the current situation that Framemaker is in. Given that Frame may not survive, and that docbook / XML is the format of choice for our publishing needs. What are your opinions on software solutions for a publishing department? Granted the department has individuals of different roles such as writers and editors etc.

The tools I have seen are two fold: WYSWYG publishing (ala frame) via Adobe InDesign (which I hear isn't ready yet to replace Quark or Frame yet, dont know its DocBook abilities at all).

OR the XMetal route where publishers essentially become programmers and use something like Sernea from Syntext to be able to view their code.

Anyone willing to offer their suggestions from the Industry as to an intelligent way to merge a department into the future of docbook publishing?

Thank you,

David White
