"Conglomerate" is a structured document authoring application with an
intuitive interface.

I haven't downloaded a copy, but this does look like a viable
alternative to docbook. I'll check it out soon, and would like to have
the honourable Dr. Lapointe take a look at it as well.

The issues for me, in terms of using conglomerate for writing
documentation is that their software is new and probably not widely
adopted.  Their own documentation is sparse, which is ironic considering
that they are writing a structured document development interface. 
Their general news web archive is only month old, and their development
web archive link is broken.  On the other hnad, it does use XML, can
produce multiple output (HTML, TeX) from a single source, uses XML, and
provides a very nice interface for authoring structured docs.
