It can also contain a complete set of templates, markup abreviations and 
scripted automation. Carlos Woelz has also created DocBook toolbars. In 
addition to this Paulo Moura Guedes is now involved full time in VPL 
development with one of the tasks on his do list to enable an XSL translation 
layer. This would in theory enable visual editing of DocBook files with an 
HTML representation. Quanta projects can also include internal documentation 
and other resources too.

One of my objectives for years has been making the visual creation of KDE 
documentation an easy task so that more people will enjoy it and contribute. 
We would be very interested in assisting in resource development for using 
Quanta in such an effort.
