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 http://www.sq.com/ 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.
