If you use emacs there is a PSGML mode. And emacs can be made to 
behave very much like vi if you want.

Lyx has a mode in which it'll do docbook, but I haven't looked into it 
for a while.

There are several good commercial tools (including Softquad's).

There is XXE, but I haven't tried it in a while.
