Like which?   I've been completely unable to find any tools more sophisticated 
than Emacs+SGML that support SGML adequately to work on the PostgreSQL docs, 
while there are literally dozens of XML editors ... including some GUI 
editors ... which support DocBook XML.

I have yet to see *any* tool for SGML which does more than validate tags.  The 
goal of DocBook XML would be to attract new Doc contributors (like *me*) by 
allowing them to use tools which to not require them to spend more time 
tagging their text than writing it.
