Despite the momentum behind XML, SGML+DocBook(DSSSL)+jade+[jadetex,pdfjadetex]+Makefile+emacs(psgml) is a great, multiplatform toolchain which you can start using this afternoon. If you are *already* running other XML applications, and have therefore already vetted a toolchain, you can also start using DocBook XML this afternoon. Chris
