Since the initial publication of Practical SGML the computer industry has seen a dramatic increase in the use and acceptance of SGML and many of the concepts derived from it. The existence of Practical SGML has helped to foster this growth as it provides a practical and vital introduction to the many facets of SGML and how its fits into an organization, whether it be business or government.
Practical SGML, Second Edition is an extensive revision and update that puts greater emphasis and focus on helping the novice work his or her way through the vast amounts of information required to become proficient in SGML.

  • aids and information on how to stay current with the volumes of material written on SGML in publications throughout the world;
  • practical examples of the many SGML constructs and guidelines on their appropriate uses;
  • other helpful hints and insights based on years of working with the standard and integrating it into a complex and challenging computer environment.
