I'm planning to start using DocBook XML, and am looking for tool
recommendations.  I don't need a WYSIWYG editor, but would be
interested in finding an XML-aware spell checker and a  diff-like
utility that I could use to spot changes from version to version.

Don Marti                  Even if we don't get DMCA reform, loudly
http://zgp.org/~dmarti     demanding DMCA reform is going to get the
dmarti at zgp.org             injustice of the DMCA in front of the next
KG6INA                     jury.  Make noise.  It counts.
