sgmls

(language, tool)
Sgmls is an SGML parser derived from the ARCSGML parser materials which were written by Charles Goldfarb. It outputs a simple, easily parsed, line oriented, ASCII representation of an SGML document's Element Structure Information Set (see pp 588-593 of "The SGML Handbook"). It is intended to be used as the front end for structure-controlled SGML application programs.

Formatting documents with DSSSL specifications and Jade": One of the advantages of SGML is that you can store your documents without formatting so you can later apply different formats as needed, such as when you want to deliver an SGML document to a Web browser as HTML or to a Microsoft Word user in Rich Text Format (RTF).
With these tools and the Perl interpreter installed on your PC, you can generate tree-like pictures of a DTD's structure, create a hypertext report about a DTD, create a report of differences between two DTDs, and strip the SGML markup from an SGML document.
Developing Windows SGML applications with SGMLC-Lite": SGMLC is a programming language like the C programming language but with extensions that support the processing of SGML documents.
