You could try the SGML project base at the University of Exeter

The Tutorials in *The SGML Handbook* by Charles Goldfarb, published by
Oxford a few years ago, are an excellent introduction to SGML.  A fine
article on the ideas underlying the use of SGML in humanities
applications is James H. Coombs, Allen H. Renear, and Steven J. DeRose,
"Markup systems and the future of scholarly text processing,"
Communications of the ACM, volume 30, November 1987, 933-947.
 
I'd avoid relying solely upon a software company's explanation of what
SGML or any other standardized language is.  Such companies like to add
nonstandard features and pass them off as part of the language, so as to
discourage defection to competitors.  Not a nice thing to find out after
you've invested a lot of work.

Regarding SGML, you might want to contact the Association of
American Publishers. I believe they have a headquarters in
Washington, DC. See Carol Risher on MCI Mail:
