This is one of the reasons I'm making it a guide.  It will be geared towards
both groups (newbie and senior).  My new test is working on the DSSSL to
make nicer HTML output.  Creating a book in SGML does real strange things
when I go to HTML->PDF via HTMLDOC.  Clearing some of those up is teaching
me about the DSSSL, which I will of course document and explain at some
