Just make sure that we have a *complete* list of files which need to be
formatted from sgml to something other than HTML and postscript or pdf
and we'll get them built for the release.

Mostly depending on who is doing the work, the process seems to bounce
between using sgml->rtf->text or sgml->html->text, with each having pros
and cons.
