I use a regular text editor (vim).  I've found the best way to create
content is:

1) 'forrest run'
2) Edit XML in build/webapp/content/xdocs/*
3) When you think the XML is valid, do a 'forrest validate backcopy', and
correct errors repeat the process until the XML validates.  If your
editor validates XML for you this step is much faster.
4) Check the HTML results at http://localhost:8888/
5) Go to src/documentation/content/xdocs and commit the changes to CVS.
6) goto 2

So build/webapp/* acts as a 'scratchpad' where XML lives while being
edited.  If you totally screw up, you can delete build/webapp/* and start
again.  The 'forrest validate backcopy' ensures that only valid XML gets
back to src/documentation/*
