A friend suggested using emacs apropos... I found something that sort of
worked :) Select all the text, and then do M-x indent-region. Takes a
while, but basically works like a charm. I suppose you can file that away
for the next time someone doesn't RTFM first. 

P.S. sgmlnorm does uppercase all tags- is that better form? I seem to
recall something from HOWTO-squared to this effect, but I'm not sure.
