My name is Hal Floysvik. I work in a technical documentation group at
Northern Telecom in Ottawa, Canada. I access Internet through the
facilities of Bell-Northern Research, hence the bnr part of my address
(by the way, it is hal -at- bnr -dot- ca). I am currently involved in a project to
convert our legacy Interleaf documents to I5<SGML>.

As a brand new user on Internet, I am just starting to feel my way
around the net. I just recently saw a printed copy of "Internet List
TECHWR-L". My curiosity is piqued. Briefly, I was wondering if you

* point me in the direction of Canadian technical writer newsgroups;
I'd like to have a view of both U.S. and Canadian goings-on

* tell me where I can find out about ODA (Office Document Architecture -
a standard equivalent to SGML and popular in Europe, or so I'm told)

* Add me to your digest

Other general questions...

* are there newsgroups for people to share experiences with SGML conversion?

* are there FOSI and DSSSL newsgroups?

* what other newsgroups are there on Internet for technical writers

I hope I haven't loaded you down with too many questions. I'm just
getting started, but I expect I'll be doing a lot more exploring once I
get my Internet legs.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
