This document set is designed to simplify the study of the SGML standard syntax. The primary document is the SGML Syntax Summary. Each of the syntactic productions of SGML defines a syntactic variable. The definition is in terms of other syntactic variables and other kinds of tokens. The syntactic variables are hyperlinked several ways: to the production where each syntactic variable used in the definition is defined, and to where the defined syntactic variable is used in the definitions of other syntactic variables.
Other documents provide additional information for each kind of token used in those productions.
Each of the following documents provide navigation aids and more detailed information about the other kinds of tokens, and hyperlinks to where the tokens are used in productions in the SGML Syntax Summary.
See the related suite of files on the Document Style Semantics and Specification Language, based on ISO/IEC DIS 2 10179.2:1996, also by Harvey Bingham.
See download sources for how to obtain each of these suites packed into single files for your local use.
