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.

Features:

We believe that Debian's open model of participation and commitment to system quality (as reflected in the Debian Policy URL:http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/) 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.
