Thanks everyone who replied, but I already know of SX, sgmlnorm, etc. etc.
Just recently on this list someone posted a link to a C program that did
the trick, only I can't find it.

I really don't want to parse SGML fully, as it's not needed for an
SGML->XML converter.  I just want to assume concrete syntax, leave the
entities alone, and the more esoteric SGML documents I might encounter
I'll fob off to SX or something more industrial strength.
