Hi Hugo,

Well, you can create Forrest pages using any text editor you like.  
Don't forget that you can use plugins to use other formats for document 
creation.  That is you can install the OpenOffice plugin and then write 
docuemnts in OO and the plugin will take care of the transformation.  I 
have also used WordPerfect's "publish as XML" with the Forrest sdocbook 
plugin and I'm sure that MS Word or any other word processor that can 
convert to a docbook format would work as well for that purpose. 

As for XML editors, I personally have only used jEdit (free) with XML 
plugins and Oxygen (low cost) editors.  They are both Java-based and so 
are platform independent.  I don't believe either can be localized to 
Spanish but I believe you can install a Spanish spell-checker for them.  
I did a quick look around and I did find an editor called Epic Editor 
from Arbortext that is localized to Spanish but I don't know anything 
about the editor and it is quite expensive.  We do have Spanish-speaking 
users and dev so I am sure someone can provide better info for you.
