Rumor has it WordPerfect has an SGML converter undergoing beta testing, and
(rumor also) Miscrosoft will be backing the SGML standard in Word in the

One important question to ask vendors who say their software is SGML-compliant
is "Does it support arbitrary document types?" SGML is a kind of meta-standard
in which many document type standards can exist. If you're working with one
or two document types, you want to be sure the software you buy
to import and manipulate SGML can handle the document types you work with.
Vendor X may say they are SGML-compliant, but when they say SGML-compliant,
they may only handle one type of (maybe propriety) document type.
