RE: XML Print Publishing Systems?

I can't comment on how good they are, but here's a couple you can check out:

Interwoven:  www.interwoven.com
SoftQuad: www.softquad.com

There were a couple of others I had in mind, but I just checked their web
sites and they have either gone out of business, been acquired and rolled
into ecommerce suites, or are in the process of going out of business. I
haven't really tracked this industry, but it seems that many of the
publishing companies (SGML-based or otherwise) are dropping like flies these

There's a couple of others I'm trying to remember, but am drawing a blank,
right now. If I recall them, I'll pass along the names.
