XML docbook, now that's ugly.

Docbook _is_ verbose, and the solution to this is the set of
contraction features which sgml has and xml does not.
Or use an editor that removes the need to interact with the verbosity. The lack of contraction features is one reason that XML has proliferated in a way that SGML never did. It makes it *much* easier to write an XML parser, and also makes the parsing much faster. A worthwhile tradeoff.

Have you tried docbookide (emacs mode) or XMLMind (commercial, but with a free version)? These allow you to work with DocBook format in a relatively non-cumbersome way?
