I have been curious about DocBook myself. Now you answered a basic question
of mine. Thanks.

will allow you to save in a DocBook format. I don't know how to do this or
what it means. I assume that it lets you set up a DocBook system? Or create
DocBook docs? Jim Jones

mean. Options for tools? For Help formats?

still need to buy an authoring tool (XML editor) to create your Help
