um, so how would you do a displayed equation?

well, i am not sure i agree, but never mind. an old colleague of mind
once tried to write a DTD describing LaTeX, and nearly succeeeded :-}

how will you train them to do the rest of the stuff? tables? once they
are working in a new environment writing SGML, or converting to it, I
have a feeling its _more_ confusing to embed TeX occasionally.

if you can experiment a bit and see what happens when you do
$a+b+c$ in the middle of the DSSSL output, I can start working on
implementing \beginrawTeX ... \endrawTeX, with appropriate
protection. It may just work all the time by coincidence anyway
