I was surprised how little has changed in the XML version. Some files
only differ about 10-20 Bytes in size. The largest difference I found
was in chap-inst.sgml/chap-inst.xml (.xml is about 8.5 KB smaller).

If you have already begun with SGML, it's probably better to continue
the work than to change horses in the middle of the race. You are using
DocBook anyway, so the markup itself is almost the same.
