I have received a leaflet from Oxford University Press offering
a program called SGML Tagger. As the leaflet says this is
"a program which adds SGML to computer based documents".
Is there anyone out there who has already tested this package and
would share her/his experience? My primary question is this:
According to the leaflet "SGML Tagger works out what markup is
allowed, and will only let the user insert a tag which is correct
in that particular context." However the leaflet also says that
"it reads the part of the document that is on the screen, then offers
a choice of SGML markup for insertion." How can the program find
out the relevant context if an element is longer than the current
screen, i.e. longer than 25 lines? In other words: how does the
tagger know the structure of the complete document if it sees
only a screenful of it?
Of course, any other comment would be appreciated.
