Debian Touts Integrated SGML Environment

March 30th, 1999

Debian's 2.1 distribution, now released, features integrated SGML, XML, and DSSSL infrastructure and packages. Debian's innovative SGML subsystem positions Debian as a premier platform for SGML and XML developers, offering a complete working tool set for documenters and markup programmers with no manual setup required.


We believe that Debian's open model of participation and commitment to system quality (as reflected in the Debian Policy URL: puts Debian head-and-shoulders above other commercial or free systems. SGML integration efforts continue apace in the unstable distribution, including DocBook 3.1, DocBk XML, TEI, and more DTDs.
