I added the sgml-parent-document.  Worked very nicely.  Thanks
for that.

Three Questions (Feel free to point me to other documentation that
I obviously may not have read)

1) It looks like the local variables section may be a standard
   section for editors to look for?  I thought this was just an
   Emacs thing.

2) Is there a way to publish this smaller document as its own
   html so that I can continually see that is looks correct
   outside of the full document?

3) I am working in a windows shop and most people here have found
   an affinity for XML spy.  Are there any thoughts on its
   ability to handle the needs of docbook publishing?  Emacs sure
   does a fine job.

Thanks much.
I don't want to be the rock.  Yeah, okay, what do you want to be?
I want to be the piece of glass.
