Correct me if I'm wrong, but are you planning to put SGML on your resume
simply because you've used a tool that writes SGML? If so, you may be
making a mistake. As a hiring manager, I might incorrectly conclude that
you are proficient at coding in SGML, which is quite different from using a
tool that writes SGML. It would be like saying that you're a mechanic
because you can drive a car.
