Well, for anyone who's read the latest STC Quarterly Journal, the latest topic
is SGML, for Standard General Markup Language. I am therefor officially
starting a thread about it, with the hope that this topic hasn't already been
beaten to death here.
Things to talk about: if you've used it, how you like it, what you think of
the presentation in the Journal, what you think of the concept (if you haven't
used it), the possibilities for such a system used widely, and whether all the
books in the Library of Congress could be converted to an SGML system online.
