OCLC Announces Free SGML Translation Services via Fred.

Fred is an ongoing research project at the Online Computer Library
Center, Inc. (OCLC) studying the manipulation of tagged text.

Fred includes tools to translate tagged text (SGML) to other formats.
Currently, OCLC uses Fred to translate from SGML to HTML, TeX
(PostScript), and ASCII -- showing that one should markup text in rich
SGML and translate it to other formats as the need arises.
