Hi,

  Changing `check` to use SGML::Parser::OpenSP will obsolete some code
which depends on `onsgmls` for which we do not have replacements yet,
these are in particular the

  * outline
  * sp
  * noatt
  * esis
  * errors

configuration options. I would suggest to drop "esis" without any
replacement, re-implement "outline", "sp", and "noatt" as Perl SAX
handlers and re-implement "errors" in terms of escapeHTML() and
Data::Dumper::Dumper() on the list of "problems" the various problem
reporters report. Any better ideas?

If you agree with this plan, are there any volunteers to write Perl SAX
filters for "outline" and "sp" (which would include the "noatt"
functionality)? These would probably be general purpose HTML::/XHTML::
/XML::/whatever:: CPAN modules and should be rather easy to implement.

If we cannot find people willing to implement replacements, I suggest we
drop their functionality aswell, less code, less testing, ... :-)

I am willing to implement "errors" as suggested above once we find a
solution to the problem reporting problem I have discussed in detail in
<http://www.w3.org/mid/4136797e.215936320@smtp.bjoern.hoehrmann.de>...

regards.
