Thanks Uvator. 

I was able to download nsgmls from Clark's site, and put it in /usr/bin.
 When I try to validate a file now, I get
          /bin/bash: /usr/bin/nsgmls: cannot execute binary file
           SGML validation exited abnormally with code 126 at Sun Jun  2
 I then tried 
      chmod u+x nsgmls
 But this has no effect. I also confirmed that /usr/bin is in my .bashrc
file. Are there any further suggestions on how to deal with this? [Sorry
to post this again on TLUG, but I tried on the Xemacs list, and there
were no takers.]
