In my quest to ease writing XML files in Vim (DocBook is essentially XML with a proper schema), I found a nifty plugin for vim. Installing it, however, is not so nifty…
copy xml.vim to ~/.vim/ftplugin/xml.vim
Next, do this (required for editing DocBook files):
ln -s ~/.vim/ftplugin/xml.vim ~/.vim/ftplugin/docbk.vim
In the above fashion, adapt the next step from the instructions to suit your needs:
optionally link (or copy on windows) xml.vim in ~/.vim/ftplugin directory to docbk.vim, xsl.vim, html.vim, xhtml.vim
To generate the plugin documentation for the first time, open a DocBook document, and then type (in command mode):
This command will show the mappings and remaining functionality of the plugin. And you should be on your way.
