Yes, it's Valentine's Day. So why not come to the February meeting of the SGML
Forum of NY? Dr. Steve Newcomb of TechnoTeacher will explain HyTime, the
SGML-based language for encoding hypermedia and time-based information such as
multimedia or music. Steve will cover the history and the fundamentals of
HyTime, and give us insight into the developments and applications we can
expect to see soon. Charles Goldfarb has called HyTime "the future of SGML."
Come to the February meeting and find out why.


Upcoming Programs:

On March 14th, the subject will be converting formatted text files into SGML.
Mark Gross of Data Conversion Laboratory, a leading SGML conversion service
bureau, will explain the ins and outs of converting word processed documents
into SGML. SGML and word processing are based on two fundamentally different
paradigms that make the conversion of formatted documents into SGML
challenging. Mark will outline the issues, point out the pitfalls, and explain
the options involved.
