If you're using Fedora Core 4, and you have the

Good news. I just upgraded one of my workstations to FC4. It will make
things much easier, at least for me (I must admit I never used emacs).
BIG TIP: Use the Stylist
to select styles for your headings. When you select Heading 1, you open
a first-level section. After you type the heading title, just hit
Enter, and the style changes automatically to make the following
paragraphs part of that DocBook section (<sect1>). If you select
Heading 2, and type a title, the following paragraphs are part of that
DocBook second-level section (<sect2>). Although FDP uses <section> and
not <sectN>, that's very easy to fix later.
Even better. I use OO for all my scientific writing (and of course the
indirect formatting). May be we can develop a "post-conversion" tool to
automate the fixing and eventually an OO document template for the FDP.
