We have the same need.
We have builded different sgml files compliants with the Docbook DTD and
next we have created a big chunk of SGML as $$$$$ as the look for code:
            here the first sgml file (preface, chapter,.....)
            here the secon  sgml file (preface, chapter,.....)
            here the nth sgml file (preface, chapter,.....)

Next we have generated a RTF file ... and now we want to split this file
into small files...
How is the best path to follow ?

Thanks in advance
