We treat the sgml as plain text. I use nedit to edit the user guide.
Brian uses vi. I haven't found a free SGML editor.

It looks to me like my home directory is for some reason set to
"/home/users/j/jk/jklowden". I'd guess it should oughta be
"/home/users/jklowden"? On the Source Forge host, that is.
