@AaronHall A lot of documentation is written in XML. I actually like it.

comment ConTeXt for non-technical person
Could she use XML? ConTeXt can typeset XML files, so she could use something like XMLmind or oXygen to author, then you could work with her to develop a stylesheet in ConTeXt. You'd gain validation facilities from XML, but still get the control of ConTeXt.

comment Install ConTeXt manually without using first-setup.bat
TeXLive is a TeX distribution. You can get it on DVD, see tug.org/texlive/acquire-dvd.html or you can download the package and install it, depending on how bad your internet connection is.

comment ConTeXt parsing xml file
You are correct, MKII is no longer maintained. ConTeXt MKIV is the current version, and uses LuaTeX. The good news is that XML parsing in MKIV is much better than in MKII. You can write a style sheet and pass the context exec the style sheet and the XML file and get a PDF out the other end.

comment Why should I be interested in ConTeXt?
@Jubobs dl.contextgarden.net/myway/tas/xhtml.pdf is a good way to get started if you have an XML file and want to write a stylesheet to transform it to PDF, which I think is what you're asking for.

comment Using LaTeX for pre-printed paper
If OP does not know how to set the page size, OP is not ready to implement a full solution. Sounds like you are asking for trouble.

comment How to leave a blank space at the top of each page only for chapter and section titles in ConTeXt?
I'd like to see a solution where the output on page 2 does not depend on how many lines the chapter title is, but I'm not OP.

+1 for @Marco's answer. Maybe a good mailing list question?
