This quote from a JavaWorld article is just strange enough to make me

"Advanced text handling 

At the SIGS conference, Ted Faison of Faison Computing Inc. demonstrated
the sophisticated text handling implemented in the JTextComponent class,
which has SGML-like capabilities. JFC applications can support rich
text, including multiple fonts, sizes, colors, highlighting, and
embedded pictures. Complex layout will be supported, allowing developers
to assign an element to a box to constrain its position and have other
text elements flow around it."

<SARCASM>That sounds like SGML alright!</>

Does anyone know if there is a kernel of truth in the reference to SGML?

 Paul Prescod

Art is always at peril in universities, where there are so many people, 
young and old, who love art less than argument, and dote upon a text 
that provides the nutritious pemmican on which scholars love to chew.
