from what i have seen DocBook is moving to XML
off the top off my head i think Docbook 4 is the same in both SGML and XML
and XML tools are more readily available, so it is simpler to use the XML
or i could be wrong, me and my vague memory
abiword uses XML docbook, it makes more sense considering abiword already
does a bunch of other XML based formats.
