There is information about SGML at .  is part of the University of
Waterloo's ENL210E, a completely on-line Technical Writing course that
was created entirely in SGML, and where all of the assignments are done in
SGML. Note that precisely speaking HTML documents _are_ SGML documents.

SGML-marked documents can be read directly by SoftQuad Panorma (which is
distributed by NCSA with Mosaic), or they can be converted into any format
under the sun. We convert into HTML and Word for Windows format.

Yes. We mix HTML and SGML.

No. SGML is the "Standard Generalized Markup Language", but that should be
parsed (Standard (Generalized Markup) Language). It is not a markup
language itself. You use it to _create_ markup languages. HTML is one of
the languages created with SGML.
