Is the Steve Muench attachment safe to open ?
What is this "msg" format about ?
Why post in "msg" format, why not HTML or just plain text ?

Attached is a copy of the msg format from the Steve Muench post

|How about DocBook? Seems like just what you're looking for. 
|I'm only familiar with the XML-flavor of DocBook, but 
|it originates from its SGML ancestor. 
|Norm Walsh has quite a bit of info on it (Both XML/SGML versions) at: 
|  http://nwalsh.com/sgml/index.html 
|He's recently posted some XSL Stylesheets for DocBook 
|there, too.

The benefits of marking up documents in XML instead of
HTML include a consistent look, although editing XML
isn't exactly convenient (forget about WYSIWYG).

I am trying to find documentation on mark-up for technical
documents, like those you would see on http://www.w3.org or
http://msdn.microsoft.com.  Some w3 documents are available
as XML although I can't find documentation on the
DTD or the code that was used to convert them to HTML.

Any pointers?  Do you use your own XML format and
code to convert this XML to HTML?
If so I would be interested in using what you have.
