It didn't for me; I _think_ I installed the Cygnus tools (are those
the sgml-VERSION kit?  I installed so many different distros in search
of something I could grok that I lost count.  Maybe what I need is the
ability to mix and match vendors and just fetch the tools I need to
complete what I now have with OpenJade.

Single variable _where_? Environment? A define in the makefile?  This
is one place where I got bogged down and settled for the brute force
of having several hard-coded options in my Makefile.

I didn't get one, or if I did, I didn't find it.  The docs lead me to
sgml2html which partially worked when I used an sgmltools-VERSION package
I got from Norm's site (I think) but broke when I moved to OpenJade.

Now is this a topic for a HOWTO or what? :)
