            Is anyone aware of a version of the BNC (and its associated
            DTD's) that has been converted to XML, or of a straightforward
            process for doing so? Has anyone else at least wished for an XML
            version of the BNC?

            I'm aware of James Clark's sx program for conversion of SGML
            documents to XML, although I haven't been able to get it (or
            its opensx successor) to work. I'm also aware of the
            PizzaChef tool for generating TEI-compliant DTD's. If these
            seem like a good way to go, any pointers on their use would be

            Thanks for your help.
