(1) SGML tools are only emerging and are demanding in memory, display 
(GUI) and associated tools (W3 browser or similar). JAM is capable to 
run on a DOS system and available for nearly a year now. 
(2) SGML tools cannot flexibly expand links into reflector/receptor 
links. 
(3) The overhead of -Writing- SGML is considerable, as is writing RTF, TEX
or other descriptive language. JAM is simple. 
(4) JAM does site-specific includes and branches accordingly with a 
C-preprocessor like #ifdef construct. This allows to describe two or more 
setups in a single document.


Hope this helps
