Prentice-Hall recently published the first book in their Charles F. Goldfarb
series. "README.1ST: SGML for Writers and Editors" is an SGML book specifically
designed for writers and editors. I'm readying my copy right now and it is a
great place to get started. The book is especially good at addressing the
implications that are important from a writer's point of view.
The authors are Ron Turner, Tim Douglass and Audrey Turner and the book is
available from Prentice-Hall.
