sgml-new-attribute-list-function variable?

Have you checked the value? Should be sgml-default-asl. If it's not, I
don't think you get auto-insert/value prompt for required attributes.

Look in psgml-edit.el for how it's supposed to work. Maybe Redhat
XEmacs package install puts a site-start file somewhere that sets it
to a default function other than sgml-default-asl.
