Is there a Tool that helps writing a Book with DocBook Code?

DocBook seems to be nice, but is there a Tool that helps using it? I mean something that would instantly show how it looks or allows editing more easily by selecting a word and then hitting a button to format it somehow, or to enter a paragraph, a index, a footnote, whatever.

Try dbkeditor. It's intended to help someone learn how to write docbooks XML format. It's not too fancy, but does help with some of the complexity. Runs as a standalone jar.

Get Yelp. It opens Docbook files natively, renders them nicely, shows a browseable tree-view of the document on the left, and reloads instantly when you hit control-R.
