The SOP DTD is a SGML document type definition for writing biomedical
method sheets and standard operating procedures. The package contains
the DTD, DSSSL stylesheets to render the documents in either HTML, RTF,
Postscript, PDF, DVI or MIF format, a set of m4 macros to retrieve
information and textual contents from your documents with sgrep, a
full documentation, and some more stuff. Please visit:


The aim of this package is to facilitate the use of a central method
or SOP repository in a workgroup or a department. All documents can
be made available as HTML in the intranet, and any print format can
be used to create a hardcopy for the lab bench. sgrep and the m4
macros allow to search for specific information in the pool of method
sheets, and they also allow to selectively retrieve parts of existing
documents (without having to know in which document they are stored)
to piece together new documents.

This is the initial public release, so parts may be missing or too
restrictive for general use. I'll be happy to incorporate any
feedback to improve the stuff.
