I wrote an SGML/XML gui in tk called costwish (it sat upon Joe English's
version of CoST). [JUMBO is the logical outcome of that]. It worked fine -
but distribution was the problem - you needed about 5 files for SGML
(*.dcl, catalog, *.ent, *.sgm, *.dtd) for each instance and the same for
the software. XML has solved the first problem but I have lost touch with
tcl/tk since and I don't know how portable the *.exe's are. Anyway - if
anyone is interested they are welcome to use costwish.
