working with XML is EXTREMELY difficult.

No. Yes (I like such "réponse de Normand" as we say in France :-)

No it's not difficult. starting from a template allow anybody to write docs in a manner of minutes.

look at:

http://tldp.org/LDP/LDP-Author-Guide/html/index.html

for a similar situation.

Yes, if not difficult, it's tedious for casual use. Like the wiki page for edits and comments, we could use a wiki page (openSUSE?) for drafts. In fact SDB pages are very near from that. of course, at some moment, somebody will have to make it xml :-(

some years ago I worked to make available a docbook editor in OpenOffice, there is something like this, I don't know a what point it's usable (I gave up far before it become live)

a docbook plugin for openoffice would be of major interest, not only for us, but evidently it's not obvious (if any kind of syntax checking is to be done)

be aware that an wml editor is similar to an html editor and no html editor is really usable by non technical people if you want a clean code (that is a code exchangeable between html editors)

I always turned back to vi after using bluefish, quanta+, mozilla or NVu (not to mention Front page or dreamweaver that I feeled like nightmareweaver)
