sgml2x allows to easily format SGML and XML documents using DSSSL
stylesheets, and provides the following features:
* Multiple possible stylesheets per document class
* Easy specification of style-sheets using sort aliases
* Easy integration of new stylesheets by adding a simple new
definition file in a configuration directory
* The caller can specify a PATH-like list of configuration
directories, defaulting to one system-wide, one per-user, and
one per-project configuration directory
* Automatic selection of a default stylesheet to be used
It will currently be most useful with one of the suggested sets of
DSSSL stylesheets for DocBook.

from elinks).
