Yes, I have it installed :-).  And there are several SGMLSpm based
solutions as well (linuxdoc, debiandoc).  But hacking both sdc and
SGMLSpm is not as simple.

When you have a couple of rich DTD's you work with, you may have
converters programmed once and for ever.  But I'd like to write small
DTDs as I need them (I have hacked easydtd to run on Unix and it's
really easy).  Most of them will be a screen long with another few
screens of *declarative* DSSSL style sheet.
