Not trying to be difficult, but how could any useful form of default
presentation other than running everything together or making every element
a separate block be provided by a DTD-inspecific tool?  I don't know of any
generalized SGML tool that provides any useful sort of default styling. The
best is Arbortext's Document Architect, which provides a sort of wizard by
which it asks a bunch of questions and makes some informed guesses and then
generates a style sheet that can be a reasonable starting place (it can
also be more trouble than it's worth depending on what sort of DTD you
happen to have).
