Thanks to everybody who answered my question. Thanks to Tony. Yes, you're
right, with -c... it works. I'm was bit confused about that because I have
'Set the SGML_CATALOG_FILES environment variable to point to the file
pubtext/xml.soc' as explained in http://www.jclark.com/sp/xml.htm.

In fact I used my own old catalog file.
Now I checked the xml.dcl that I used and the one that is part of sp:
Unfortunately I used "ISO 8879:1986 (ENR)" instead of "ISO 8879:1986 (WWW)"

Thanks for your help!
