I should have probably been a little less flippant. What I *meant* was that
if FM/SGML is set up with an SGML application, then you can output good
SGML, and that can be used as the base for translation.

What we're talking about there, though, is an industrial-sized (think IBM
or Boeing) translation setup. If you gasped at S-Tagger prices, you'd have
a heart attack at the price for this approach.
