DocBook plugin?

Unfortunately I need to write some documentation sometimes, too. As
you might understand, I love my IDEA-desktop and would like to make
use of it's powerful XML-capabilities to edit DocBook-XML files. If
IDEA would allow me to simply transform them to HTML and PDF (with
SAXON and FO), it would make my day sunnier (Issue 7858).

But perhaps there already exists a nice plugin or ANT-script?

Cheers,
Tom

That's a great Idea Tim. Going further though, is it worth requesting that
Idea be able to show a CSS-view of a Docbook XML file - like in XMetal? It
provides a great editing environment.

Hey, if the XML editor was truly DTD aware we would be able to have a list
of elements to be dropped into the file aswell!

Yes, I'd rather pay my money to Intellij and the XMetal people.

Cheers back to ya,

Ian
