That appears to be reasonably up to date. Except that in the current 
wine you might not need to bother with the afmfiles stuff. And of 
course, check the sample config file documentation/samples/config. 
Otherwise, I read the sgml stuff with a script, which saves trying to 
figure out how to get sgml tools to work. I save the script as 
/usr/local/bin/sgml, and then type "sgml printing.sgml", for example:

sed -e 's/<[^<>]*>//g' -e 's/&lt;/</g' -e 's/&gt;/>/g' $1 |less -ni

Not great, but more readable than the sgml source:-)
