Yep. We're also playing around with NoCat, and to my mind right now the two of them together are synergistically more than the sum of their respective parts, and so if anyone on the list thinks that to be either advisable (!! or stupid!!) I am thinking that doing them in tandem, sort of glancing at one while doing the other, might be a Good Thing.

I'm doing my stuff by hand. I played with LyX a bit a while ago, and am not certain that the GUI ease it offered overcame the lack of fine-grained control. It also may be radically better by now, or perhaps supplanted by something better.
DocBook is way cool, but it's a big boat to navigate into the slip, IMO.
I meet with this class Friday afternoon and will try to line up some volunteers at that time.
