Get a copy of WordPerfect Office 2000 for Windoze and use
the SGML editor - your editor should do at least as much.
Particularly important are a reliable macro capability and
layouts. Do them better than WP. But most of all, try WP.
There isn't any reason to single out XML for support - go
whole hog and do SGML. Write me off-line about automation


Don't be afraid to try the competition, they've got ideas
you should.
