Thanks for the pointer...  I'm still reading up more about this but I don't see any XHTML DTDs in my SGML lib folder.

This is a Mac OS X box with OpenSP 1.5.2 installed.  I flippantly tried downloading some XHTML DTDs at http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/xhtml1.tgz and copying the DTDs themselves into the OpenSP-1.5.2, but that didn't work on first try.  I'll give it another shot over the weekend, but maybe this is indeed part of the problem...

thanks again,
