My tech writing department is considering adopting SGML for single-sourcing
our print and online documentation. This includes 400+ page manuals, quick
reference materials, and online help.

Would anyone care to mention anything related to using SGML that would help
us get a fix on its pros and cons? What unanticipated pitfalls did you
encounter using it? How did you find the process of switching over to using
SGML? What sort of training requirements did you face (and their costs)?
And, generally, any information that you think would help us know more
about what we might be getting into.
