Can you explain this in more detail, please.   

When I understand you correctly, the point is the specific DTD, but not the
SGML approach. Ok, there currently is a SGMLTools-DTD in work and even a
LinuxDOC97-DTD. But I think it is not very important which specific DTD we
actually use as long as the language is simple enough. We can convert between
them very easily. The major point is that we can document our stuff easily
_AND_ generate nice output formats for both online viewing and paper printing.
