Maybe I'm not super-young any more, but I recently found some very
useful SGML documentation on the web. It's a nifty system, and I'm
going to learn SGML with its cool features like <D/2009-07-09/ just
for the fun of being reactionary and defying the Zeitgeist.

Here's a list of what I gathered on SGML on the Web:

* James Clark's SP processor
* "A Gentle Introduction to SGML" by C. M. Sperberg-McQueen and Lou
  Burnard - http://www.isgmlug.org/sgmlhelp/g-index.htm
* James Clark's note "Comparison of SGML and XML"
* "SGML and HTML Explained" by Martin Bryan, available from his website
* "From Wiki to XML, through SGML", article by Rick Jelliffe
* Cover pages on SGML, many links are dead

If you know of more useful high-quality SGML information, please let me
