editing text type documents (I've done docbook and DITA in it). You
just have to unlearn psgml behaviour and embrace nxml behaviour.
But it isn't very good for data documents. For those you'd be better

Heh... but of course, if you won't accept that nxml can be a good text
document editor, then I guess the conclusion is that it is useless...;-)
It isn't useless to me, though.
