This is true -- although not very friendly for a first-time user, SGML 
mode is very powerful and amazingly complete in its abilities.  For
example, it is capable of parsing shorttags.

However, SGML mode will not obviate the need to know the tags you
intend to use.  If you are looking for a "WYSIWYG" interface towards a 
specific SGML application, sgml-mode is not your cup of tea.
