Has anyone considered using OmniMark's 'The Compleat SGML' CD as a starting place? It
was designed as a conformance suite for SGML parsers, with over 10,000 documents in
various states of validity, size and degrees of complexity. I'm not sure of the legal
issues related to copyright - it might be worth an inquiry to OmniMark - but it was a
marketable product at a cost of about $200. With the number of XML parsers in the
pipeline, a full conformance suite might even turn a few dollars.
