Gary misunderstands me here. I am not saying that using SGML will avoid these
costs. I am saying that it is currently impossible for most companies to make
intelligent comparisons between different solutions or technologies to a
process problem because they have no way of measuring the real cost of the
current way of doing things, much less of the alternatives.

The Intel study was part of an analysis of the way they were producing
databooks. As a result of what they learned, they are implementing the
Pinnacles standard, which includes SGML components, to see if it will improve
the process and the quality of the information they publish.
