Susan makes an excellent point here. To it, let me add that there are
more tools now than ever which work with a pure relational model, or
with an object-relational hybrid, for managing documents and document
components themselves. They are getting better each month.

Beyond that, some middleware products (well, I know about one) now
include very promising features to enable writers to use existing
corporate relational databases, their contents, and other text to
leverage a lot of corporate infrastructure for publishing purposes.

So, this tip is a good one, and you all should just go and do it. ;-)
