XML will not replace SGML or HTML because there are things that SGML can
handle what XML can't.
XML is a simplified SGML-version optimized for use by web-authors and to
lower the technical barriers of full SGML to a wider 'audience'.

HTML will remain the low-end solution for quick, simple things.

SGML is one of the standards in the US DoD CALS programs.
