I wonder if I should expect this?  Three people respond to my
question, all of them nitpicking about a quote mark that doesn't
affect the failure or success of the code. Yes, the extra quote mark
in 'sgml-mode-hook' was an ignorant mistake. I copied it off a sample
ini file on www.dotemacs.de. Removing the trailing apostrophe does not
fix the problem.

So what should I have written instead that will change the variables
while in sgml-mode?
