if i understand you and micah correctly, there's no such language as "SGML".
it's a standard for writing a markup language.  if HTML is a vegetarian pizza,
and XML is a sausage pizza, then SGML is a recipe for "pizza".

if this is correct, then what did the guy mean when he said my submission
should be in "SGML"?   is this a way of saying that html is ok, and xml is
ok, but latex is not ok?

is xml == docbook?

what other SGML options do i have besides xml and html?
