I'm not sure how well it fits your SGML goal, but I know of one
excellent option for getting a database on the web: IBM produces an
HTTP server (the non-secure version is free) that has full support to
link directly into a DB2 database (it also has CICS support!). If you
want to give it a look, go to and use their search engine
to look for "Internet Connection Server".

There are, if I remember correctly, OS/2, AIX, NT, and a couple other
versions available (pretty much everything DB2 supports).

Your friend and mine,

Living in the limelight, the universal dream, for those who wish to seem
Those who wish to be, must put aside the alienation
Get on with the fascination, the real relation
The underlying theme...
