I've been thinking for a while now that this project really needs to
focus more on developing user-friendly tools to get the internal work
done. These should be marketable in themselves, but can nonetheless be
designed as expert interfaces in the short run.

Meanwhile, I'm using emacs for the glossary and it picked up the DTD
quite nicely. I understand LyX has some form of support for Docbook, and
maybe Abiword does too?
