  Description     : spell checker for SGML documents

This package includes a couple of tools that you can use to
automatically spell-check your SGML documents. One of the
advantages of this tool over some other SGML-aware spell
checkers is that it scans your documents in the form in which
the SGML parser actually sees it, which means it is not line-based,
system entities are resolved, marked sections are treated appropriately, etc.

Also, this tool can be made aware of particular DTDs, in the
sense that it knows not to spell-check the content of elements
that do not represent human-language text, such as <programlisting>
in DocBook. An exclusion list for the DocBook DTD is included, others
can be added trivially.
