There's no need to know SGML. All you need to do is edit the .sgml file and 
modify the text. It's actually very straight forward and if you know HTML you 
will have a very easy time figuring out SGML. There are just a few changes. 
Like a paragraph in html is done by <p> </p> in DocBook it's <para> </para> 
and a few more. 

But I don't think you'll need to use a lot of tags. But, sure, if you do have 
problems with modifying the text in the sgml code then just send me a plain 
text file. No HTML - I'll end up having to convert it to SGML. It's much 
quicker to just make SGML from plain text than to convert html to sgml in 
this case.
