We're a bit short on *simple* examples.  The two existing complete and
comprehensive property sets, one for SGML and the other for HyTime,
are quite challenging to absorb.  However, they can be made much
easier to absorb in small doses by means of interactively browsing a
browsable representation.  Using its "PropGrinder" technology to munge
the SGML and HyTime Property Sets, TechnoTeacher has created sets of
HTML files that accomplish this goal.  The SGML property set can be
found at

I think Eliot Kimber's PHyLIS demo uses a very simple (probably overly
simple, at least for industrial purposes) property set for CGM.
