Setting aside GUI XML or SGML editors of which we all hear rumours.. :)

PSGML mode for Emacs. It's a separate package. It was very cool and
made it try (again...) to learn Emacs just to be able to use it. 

Dunno for vi/vim, although I'd be interested if anyone has simple
vim macros for vim newbies. (I still can't learn emacs: I am too
used to joe, whose kill and yank keys are almost the exact opposite
of Emacs, leading to disasters :) So I thought I'd put years of
moving my little @ sign around nethack to use and try vim again. So
vim stuff would be handy. 

I usually use joe, and a lot of little files with quick templates of 
some of the common constructions (<qandaset> and <variablelist> are 
the obvious examples), and a -lot- cut and paste :)

Also, that's why I like the gnome document templates. Copy, splat,
done :)
