Right. I am finishing up an article for xml.com which
goes into the origins of PYX.

In a nutshell, SGML never made sense to me until I 
saw ESIS popping out of James Clarks sgmls parser.
A lot of my SGML systems have been ESIS based and
I have been somewhat suprised at the lack of
an ESIS-like approach to problem solving in
the XML world. PYX is an attempt at introducing
XML developers with no background in
SGML to this sort of processing paradigm.

Yup. webfarm machine finally working. Should be able
to remove this META Refresh, um, feature, in the
near future.
