Re: Writing howtos not under Linux (Was Editors for SGML)

The Windows version of WordPerfect 2000 Supports SGML and XML and comes
with Docbook already.

<CITE>Now the point:
<CITE>I have searched for a tool that allow me to use a different OS and
<CITE>application (tipically Word under Windows) to produce an SGML HOWTO.
<CITE>I've found a lot of ports of unix applications that runs under Windows, but
<CITE>they don't meet my needs.
<CITE>* XEmacs is a big package tha needs to be understood. I have not the time to
<CITE>learn another package, because I use Linux only on the server side and for
<CITE>everyday-housekeeping-writealetterforfriends jobs I use M$ things.
<CITE>* Lyx is ported to M$ too, but only in his native mode. I was not able to
<CITE>let it exports in sgml format (I have a lot of difficulties in enabling this
<CITE>feature in the Linux version too !!!!!)
<CITE>* M$ has an addon called SGML Author for Word that ships at +500$. I don't
<CITE>know anything about it and I think i will never know nothing...
<CITE>* Omnimark Technologies have a software RTF2XML that runs with the trial
<CITE>verson of OMNIMARK LE that converts RTF files to XML. Ihave to check it out.
<CITE>In definitive: why we have in sgmltools the ability to convert sgml to rtf
<CITE>and not in the opposite way ?
<CITE>Another time: sorry for my lack of knowledge !
<CITE>It is a pleasure for me to write an HOWTO, it is useful for the community
<CITE>and me, but I have to put my efforts in the contents, not on how to build
<CITE>tables under Lyx or learning using Emacs.
