I've checked out this site, and it looks like it handles at least one element
that I'm looking for. I'm also experimenting with Access 7.0 (ptui) to build
relationships between document fragments and sections and hope to use CGIs to
call these up to a web page. The other piece is that I have to be able to
compile fragments into a single flat file for printing. So far, this part has
been esay. The difficulty will come in when I have to map and translate the HTML
(and in the future, raw SGML) into some proprietary print format like PDF. Don't
suppose you can tell me how to do that, can you?
