These applications are not required, but can make working on the documentation easier or add capabilities.

Vim (editors/vim)

A popular editor for working with XML and derived documents, like DocBook XML.

Emacs or XEmacs (editors/emacs or editors/xemacs)

Both of these editors include a special mode for editing documents marked up according to an XML DTD. This mode includes commands to reduce the amount of typing needed, and help reduce the possibility of errors.
