I would say it depends on the size of your documents.  For smaller, less 
complex documents (< 10 pages?), HTML is probably close to right.  For 100+ 
page papers or manuals, a more structured SGML doctype would be what is 
called for.  Just another reason I think that eventually the Web will evolve 
to SGML.
