Maybe we have. I don't know that anybody really expected that users 
with working SGML systems would throw them away to start afresh with 
XML. However, how many new projects involving XML have we seen in the 
last 5 years? It seems to me that anything starting now is based on 
XML rather than SGML.

Perhaps some of the old SGMLers who predate XML have a different 
perspective. Are you seeing any new SGML projects these days?
