MICROSTAR SHIPS SGML DOCUMENT DESIGN SOFTWARE FOR WINDOWS

 OTTAWA, ONTARIO, Nov. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Microstar is shipping NEAR AND FAR(R) for Windows. Announced in September, the product is the only graphical design tool for documents that conform to the rapidly expanding base of SGML users. SGML is an international standard for the preparation of structured electronic documents. It has been mandated by the pharmaceutical, defense, automotive, legal, semiconductor and aerospace industries for all electronic documents. A recent survey places the annual growth rate for the SGML software industry at almost 70 percent.
 At a recent trade show in Atlanta, Microstar's booth was aggressively attended during demonstrations of the company's products. Comments such as "Microstar has democratized SGML" attest to the impact NEAR AND FAR will have on the future growth of the SGML market. As well as this unique SGML document design software, Microstar was demonstrating a revolutionary new approach to document engineering known as Computer Aided Document Engineering(TM) - CADE.
 CADE is the framework within which our customers can initiate a stepwise introduction of structured documents into their organizations. Microstar uses a collaborative computing product to make CADE efficient, economical and available to all levels of the organization. And, NEAR AND FAR eliminates the difficulties related to creation of the SGML document type definition or DTD. NEAR AND FAR will be available on UNIX in the near future. The company also plans to integrate CADE with major database vendor products.
