30 years of SGML (ISO 8879)

I have been writing a new SGML parser, called sgmljs, over the last couple
of years, and I'd like to to announce it here on xml-dev on the occasion of
the SGML standard's publication 30th anniversary.

sgmljs is a fairly complete SGML parser, including even SGML LINK in all
it's glory. The only major things missing are full SHORTREF support
(but it has markdown support built-in, presented as a SHORTREF application),
and limitations with respect to what operands can appear in allgroup content models.

sgmljs is implemented in _javascript_ (ES5) and is intended as a template engine for
web applications that can run both in the browser as well as on the server-side
(under node.js and other _javascript_ containers).
The software is about to be released later this year under a copyleft license,
if there's any interest at all in it.

Right now, it can be run in a web browser (please contact me if you're interested,
as I haven't it setup for public access due to bandwidth concerns this weekend;
you can get my details on http://sgmljs.net).
I've also written a silly blog post on 30 years of SGML which is featured on
Hacker News today at https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=12771321, or directly
on http://sgmljs.net/blog.html.
