SoftQuad Panorama is an SGML browser for the Web that works as a helper
app. for Netscape or Mosaic, and has been available for some time now;
you can pick it up from or from NCSA in the Mosaic
area.  It's currently PC only, with ports under way to other platforms.

Other people are also working on SGML technology for the Web.
