It is usable. I've been through this with them regarding this problem. The
complexity of the DocBook DTD (it is recursive) causes it to display this
way. I don't use the tagbar, I just type in the tags. It properly validates
the structure and will produce the correct output of an XSL stylesheet.

I hate to keep harping about it but XMLWriter is a fine tool and well
worth the approximately $50 it costs. It is a text based editor but
makes it obvious when you are not using a DTD's elements properly.
XMLWriter doesn't seem to be usable with DocBook 4.2.
I just downloaded XMLWriter 2.12 demo and tried to use
it with DocBook. It took several *minutes* to load the
DocBook DTD into the TagBar. And after it did, the TagBar
and the popup Entry Helper don't show all the allowable
DocBook elements for a given context.
Hopefully they will fix this problem so that the tagbar can be used as intended
and show the correct DTD structure. It would be far better if it did show
the DocBook hierarchy.
I'm using Windows XP, 1.2 Ghz, 256 MB machine.
I've got the latest MSXML 4.0 as it recommends.
You must find it is more usable than my experience, so
I'm wondering what's different with your setup or usage.
