Oops!  I SHOULD have remembered since I've used OmniMark off and
on since 1994.  I guess that since I haven't used it at my current
job (March 19 - October 31, 2001) and I was thinking XML instead
of SGML, I spaced out and forgot about OmniMark's XML support and
custom entity management capabilities.  At least that's my guess
as to what happened inside the lump of flesh between my ears.

Should have, would have, could have... my apologies to all of the
other OmniMark fans on the list.
