that Emacs has wysiwyg support for DocBook.  jEdit also has some
support.  That's it for free tools.

As a first step, I'd suggest *not* redesigning the whole dejagnu manual;
just add a chapter.  That's the quickest path to something useful...

I'd be happy to.  My notes so far on your tutorial are at
Once you have some DocBook source, I'd be happy to fix up the English, too.

Perhaps that could become part of the dejagnu manual at some point?

(I've had the O'Reilly DocBook book for ages, and first read the SGML
