hell before.) I just ensure that DocBook and stylesheets are
selected in the install. And hope that they'll pull the rest
in. Hoorah for dependencies.
Having done it before, and suffered, I'm now able to do a full
docbook install without problems.
The docbook community update so frequently that you need to
be able to re-install without pain :-)
Google on vim xml gets some results. Tobias seems to have documented it;
I'm sure there is plenty around, if you want it?
