Since this discussion has morphed a bit .. I'll add a bit more to the
MIF/XML thread. When XML came around I always thought how nice it would
be to be able to convert between MIF and XML. Since MIF does have some
similarities with XML, it seemed like a reasonable thing to do. So in
2003 I created the beginning of what has become MIFML (the XML
representation of a MIF file).
I developed a DTD that maps all MIF 7 statements to comparable XML
structures (including embedded graphics to some degree), then created a
command line utility to perform the conversion from MIF to MIFML and
back. This utility and the DTD are freely available from the URL above.
I haven't touched this code in years, so it's stuck at MIF7 level,
although that should still work reasonably well.

Sorry, Craig, but there's nothing to suggest that MIF has any basis in SGML,
Just goes to show how pioneering the original product was. Afair, its only
competitor was Interleaf, which required one 'administrator' per six or so
