[July 05, 2002] IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) uses SGML and XML in its standards production process.
IEEE-SA Electronic Services (from the FAQ document). IEEE-SA Electronic Services provides style templates for IEEE standards (Microsoft Word 6.0; FrameMaker MIF frontmatter and body templates; FrameMaker 6 frontmatter and body templates). These stylesheets are for "use with popular word processing software so that information can be readily converted to Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML), which is the internal production format of IEEE-SA... IEEE-SA Electronic Services refers to a loosely connected set of information technologies intended to streamline the IEEE standards development process. The term is also used to describe the IEEE-SA technical staff, who are tasked with developing those technologies. Its intent is to provide a range of computer services that can be used in many different ways to satisfy many different needs..."
