I'm happy to announce a new, public version of my XML patches for
Lennart Staflin's PSGML (an SGML mode for Emacs).  You can download
the patches from the following URL:

These patches allow you to use PSGML in Emacs as a non-validating XML
editor: all names will be case-sensitive, many (but not all) forbidden
constructions will generate errors, all attribute values will be
quoted, and PSGML will use the variant XML delimiters.

There are also two changes that are useful for full SGML as well as

- these patches add support for multiple ATTLIST declarations for the
  same associated element type

- the variable sgml-namecase-general allows you to make element type names,
  attribute names, and keywords case-sensitive in full SGML as well

You will need PSGML 1.0.1 to use these patches:

Install PSGML 1.0.1 first, then install these patches over it.  If you
are not using PSGML's Makefile, make certain that you byte-compile
psgml-parse.el before psgml-dtd.el or psgml-edit.el.
