That's what I was wondering. I've used psgml before to clean up wysiwyg-edited
web pages, as opposed to writing documents from scratch, where you use
probably a dozen tags, if you're concientiously using css. I just thought it was
awesome to find an editor that could actually read a DTD and understand markup;
and with debian, the validator was all hooked up and ready to go -- I dunno, are
there others?

Yeah, again, with debian, I didn't have much trouble installing the converters
(db2x...) I guess now I'm just thinking about how one would go about tweaking
the xslt or whatever to make it a little more personalized.
