Sorry for my ignorance but how can I modify LCNMSTRT and UCNMSTRT? can you
just give me an example of how to set that. Is it set by a markup? if yes
how the markup looks like? should I include this in the document prolog
(i.e. before the doctype declaration)?

Thanx for your help

Since your tags are in Japanese characters, I believe you
may have to modify the LCNMSTRT, UCNMSTRT, etc. in the SGML
Declaration to include the Japanese Characters. I have only
tried this once with a very simple Japanese file with nsgmls
and it works
