I have attached the sgml so that the faq is all in one file. One file or 
100 files makes no real diference...  So If you prefer only 1(big) file 
then I can do it this way.

The thing that is nice about sgml is that you can get html, ps and pdf 
out of it that what makes it hot. If Vincent can work out a (pretty) dsl 
file that will run on my system we should be in good shape. We already 
have faq-plain.dsl that works good but does not have the prettys.

I am working on it now...  Status 3%. It should be ready by the end of 
next week, sooner if I get some real time to work on it.

I have not seen to many changes or requests for changes so I am just 
working off your url. <grin>

Once Vincent has worked out the  dsl file we should have it as a target 
in the makefile. Vincent are you game for this?
