Subject:   ANNOUNCEMENT: Debian Touts Integrated SGML Environment

Debian's 2.1 distribution, now in release, features integrated SGML, XML, and DSSSL infrastructure and packages. Debian's innovotive SGML subsystem positions Debian as a premier platform for SGML and XML developers, offering a complete, working toolset for documenters and markup programmers, with no manual setup required.


We believe that Debian's open model of participation and committment to system quality (as reflected in the Debian Policy puts Debian head-and-shoulders above other commercial or free systems. SGML integration efforts continue apace in the unstable distribution, including DocBook 3.1, DocBk XML, TEI, and more DTDs.

For more information on Debian see For installation on how to obtain and install the stable release,
