I did try and got error message at the and of process:

$ osgmlnorm -wxml xml.dec manual.xml
osgmlnorm:E: cannot find "xml.dec"; tried "xml.dec",
"/usr/local/share/sgml/xml.dec", "/usr/share/sgml/xml.dec"  
named character reference 
"X20AC" is not a function name 
named character reference 
"X21B6" is not a function name 
osgmlnorm:I: maximum number of errors (200) reached; change with -E

When I ask for a tool that can convert a xml file to sgml, then I thought
for a free software tool. Unfortunately XMetal and Arbortext are not
free softwares. My system is a GNU/Linux system. :)
