DocBook IDE

I have no plans for any future work on this package. I have switched to nxml-mode exclusively.

The DocBook IDE[1] is an Emacs major mode for editing DocBook documents.

The current version is 0.1 from 29 March 2000.


  • Font lock highlighting for DocBook elements and attributes

  • 'docbook-complete' function for inserting element and attribute names

  • 'docbook-insert-tag' function for inserting matching start- and end-tags

  • Automatic insertion of element content (e.g. firstname and surname in author)

  • Automatic completion of end-tags

  • Comprehensive abbreviations table to further ease typing

[1]This package is based extensively on Tony Graham's xslide package. Attribute all features to Tony, all bugs to me.
