If you wanted to write a novel these days and wanted to use an XML format for input, with output to PDF, HTML, DOCX, etc., what toolchain would you use? Is DocBook the only choice, or are there better alternatives?

You might go with conTexT, it takes xml input and you can output whatever you want pdf/html/docbook with a bit of tinkering. You need some programming skills though
