SGML Category SGML Author Capacity Attributes Attributes are handled using Word's Private Fields which are designed to store information that does not appear in the document. This enables SGML Author users to insert Attributes into the text stream without having to view them unless they want to. Entity References SGML Author supports Entity References as long as they are defined correctly in the DTD and the user enters the appropriate Parameter Entity in the document text stream. ID/IDRef Pairs SGML Author automatically converts Bookmarks to ID Attributes and Ref Fields to IDRefs. OLE Objects and OLE Objects and Pictures can be saved Pictures as *.CGM or *.WMF graphic files, or they can be saved out as binary files that Word can retrieve later. Tables SGML Author supports a subset of the CALS table model based on Word's table features. International SGML Author supports international Characters characters defined in the ISO character entity sets. All glyphs in the ANSI character set above 127, the Zapf Dingbats, WingDings, and Symbol fonts, and some glyphs that are part of the Reference Concrete Syntax are turned into character entities. Equations SGML Author converts to and from the ISO standard (ISO/IEL TR 9573-11:1992E) for representing equations as SGML. You can also choose to export equations as OLE Objects. Mark-up SGML Author supports SHORTTAG, OMITTAG, Minimization SHORTREF on import and exports them as fully normalized SGML. Datatag and rank are not supported by SGML Author. Marked Sections SGML Author imports marked sections based on whether they are marked as 'Included' or 'Ignored'. SGML Author does not export marked sections because Word does not support conditional text. Direct Formatting All mark-up in Word documents must use either Paragraph styles, or for inner paragraph mark-up, Character styles. All direct formatting is ignored. Multiple DTD's SGML Author can be configured to work with any DTD using point-and-click tools
