SGML Declarations, by Wayne L. Wohler
In 1992-1993, Wayne L. Wohler published a three-part serialized article on the SGML Declaration. It appeared in <TAG>: The SGML Newsletter, as one of <TAG>'s occasional SGML tutorial series, under the title "The DTD May Not Be Enough: SGML Declarations". See the three parts in: <TAG> 5/10 (October 1992) 6-9, <TAG> 6/1 (January 1993) 1-7; <TAG> 6/2 (February 1993) 1-6.
Thanks to the cooperation of Wayne Wohler, Brian Travis (Managing Editor of <TAG>), and Don Day (IBM Austin), this tutorial on the SGML declaration is now available via the Internet in HTML format. Wayne Wohler made the original source document available to Don Day, who used IBM's Bookmaster to create the HTML files.
You may access the online tutorial by pointing your WWW client (Mosaic, CELLO, Netscape, Lynx, etc.) at the following URL:
