Abstract : This report describes the HyperText Markup Language (HTML) and Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) Software Tool Evaluation. The purpose of this task is to investigate the viability of selected software tools (particularly public domain and shareware) supporting HyperText Markup Language (HTML) and Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) for use within the Intelink environment. HTTlL and SGML authoring tools as well as conversion tools to/from HTLLJSGML and selected word processing applications will be assessed using a standardized process. The effort will include the formulation of representative documents and the directions for exercising each of the tools so as to include the particular HTML and SGML features and characteristics required in Intelink documents. A set of criteria will be established to characterize each tool's overall capability. Candidate criteria include the extent to which the tool provides valid SGML that can be parsed; the extent to which valid tables and graphics are created; the number of platforms on which the tool family operates; ease of use; cost; and the extent to which the SGML attribute feature is supported. The report also discusses Targeted Issue Analyses for Information Standards which pertain to a high level survey of a selected group of topics supplementary to the main task. (KAR) p. 2
