Since SGML existed before HTML (HTML is just a specialized SGML
application), SGML is doing fine. It's not a "mass market" type of
thing, like HTML, because it takes a lot of analysis and planning.

And since when has the measure of something's success been amount of
press coverage it receives? If that were true, every program in
existence today would be an object-oriented client/server
application written in Java! <G>

The Davenport Group web site is an excellent source of information
and links to additional SGML information.
