The Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) is a standard for the
markup and exchange of documents. These documents may include graphics
using the Computer Graphics Metafile standard or raster data.

There is a need in the community by groups such as AGOCG to exchange
documents in a standard way. SGML may provide the answer. This
workshop will look at the merits of SGML compared with other possible
formats and will make recommendations as to whether this is the right
time to move to SGML in the community and will propose a strategy for

Subject: "My problematic UUNET/UUCP address"

Dear Colleagues,
Sorry that my UUNET/UUCP address has caused some headaches. Willard
long ago switched to my BITNET address, but I think our local mail experts
have found the cause of all the problems: UUCP (UNIX) mailers are case
sensitive to the user's e-mail name, but NOT to the site (machine) name.
I send out almost all my e-mail messages from this account. They are
later switched over to BITNET via UUNET.

The following addresses will work:

UNHD!PSC90!jdg@uunet.UU.NET etc.

The following will NOT work:

unhd!psc90!JDG@uunet.UU.NET and all other combinations
where "JDG" appears.

Some users have reported that "PSC" as well as "JDG" must be in lowercase
letters for the addresses to me to be accepted at all points along the way.
I recommend the following options:



Perhaps Bob Kraft could specify the address that worked for him. Thanks
to him for dogged investigative e-mail efforts!
