[vox-tech] syntax highlighting for docbook in vim

dear all,

syntax highlighting was working with everything except for docbook with vim
under the current woody package.

i'm not sure if it's vim or if it debian, but downloading vim 6.0 got the
highlighting to work fine.  the url to download vim 6.0 is at the end of the
forwarded message.

Weird - I just tested it on a machine with vim 5.8, didn't work, but on
my local vim 6.0aw it works perfect.

You might want to upgrade to that, there is Debian packages right here,
if you're on Debian:
