Remember the blog, How to create a visual DocBook editor in 10 minutes and how it described how to create a Docbook editor with the Visual page editor in JBoss Tools ?

Here are two of them (click for full size):

You can download the experimental plugin here.

Since Ronald were so much on fire I instantly offered him to host the sourcecode for him at JBoss tools SVN .

That is what I like about open development, from idea to execution within less than 24-hours.

Have fun!
