Dear DSSSL List,

This is a plea for your help.  The two biggest questions
that first-time attendees to the SGML Conference (this year
SGML/XML'97 in Washington D.C. USA on December 8-11) have
are "What is XML and what does it mean to me?" and
"What is DSSSL?"

It would be really nice to have a concentration of Posters
at the conference this year explaining DSSSL, describing
dsssl-o, listing and describing the free software tools
and libraries available, showing examples, giving a few
case studies, etc.

To date, I have exactly ONE DSSSL poster.  Help!  Help!
This is a real chance to spread the word and do some
education.  (As all the ads say, "no personal selling
is involved", it would be *nice* if you stood by your
poster for one half-hour at the conference, but you
DO NOT have to!)

It's easy!  It's fun!  Please do a DSSSL poster!

Don't know what a poster is?  Drop me a private email
and I'll tell you.  Know all about them?  The technical
details are given below.
