I went to a couple of SGML sessions. I did pick up a good deal of
information, but then I hadn't really taken the time to do much reading on
my own. If it's Web publishing you're interested in, just open your favorite
browser and start looking. There is SO much out there!! The most useful
sessions were those that shared real experiences of real writers and
publishers -- both good and bad! A couple of groups had appeared to fail
miserably because they didn't understand fully what they were getting into.
(A good lesson) Others were very innovative in their use of SGML as a
money-making tool for their company.

I'd go again to those sessions. But to learn how to implement SGML more in
my own backyard? I'd need a LOT more info, time, and experimentation. Like
style sheets, SGML is only as good as the design and the writer's
understanding and appropriate application of the design.

If you'd like any details, send me an email and I'll see if we can get you
copies of any of our notes (we had to write up our sessions).

Not being able to attend the STC annual conference this year, I'm just
Did any readers of TECHWR-L attend any of the SGML sessions that were
and, if so, did you have any reactions to them? I'm especially curious to
how much interest there was among those attending, and whether they found
sessions worthwhile or not.
