I'd like to test it. One caveat: As far as I know, Debian seriously munges
file locations and such for SGML. So, I'm a little worried that the tools
will be unable to find stylesheets and such on my system. Any idea if this
is the case? Or should /everything/ be specifiable at compile time?

Sourceforge is great, isn't it? Actually, I just filed a bug today dealing
with SGML: their new Doc Manager tool fails miserably when fed SGML.
Don't know if anyone here cares, but you should be able to follow the bug

Warning, though- it's not yet up to spec (at least in my opinion). Still
impossible (AFAICT) to get an author's email to display in the traditional
location, for example. Also, the problem w. <Book> v. <Article> in
handling the first page for HTML.
