Check out http://www.xml.com for tutorials on starting out with XML.
Once you have a handle on that, there's a tutorial called "Writing Documentation Using DocBook" by David Rugge, Mark Galassi & Eric Bischoff on the 'net somewhere - a search on Google should track it down if it's not at http://www.caldera.de/~eric/crash_course/HTML/index.htm.
As an XML/DocBook application programmer myself, I found the free download of "Docbook: The Definitive Guide" published by O'Reilly (http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/docbook/) very useful - http://docbook.org/tdg/en/.
Hope that helps.
On a personal note, what platform will you be developing for (Win/Linux)? What development tools will you be using?

Subject: DOCBOOK: A couple of questions... DocBook's basics and documentation
With the occasion of this first message I introduce myself.
My name is Andrew and I am a programmer.
I've been asked to write a docbook visual editor( that may become
open-source ) but I never dealt with XML before so... would you please point
me to a *good* basic documentation that will allow me to get acquainted with
these things quickly?
Hoping in your ( possibly in english please ) answers, I greet you people
