Just for your fun - I've found the song in usenet archives. Here it is:

From: jenglish@crl.com (Joe English)
Newsgroups: comp.text.sgml
Subject: A Song
Date: 24 Oct 1994 19:05:27 -0700
Organization: Helpless people on subway trains
Lines: 51
Message-ID: <38hp57$1r6@crl.crl.com>
NNTP-Posting-Host: crl.com

[ Allegro, with vigor ]

Well, if you can't do it with <!LINKTYPE ...>,
And features of SGML,
And if you can't hack it in HyTime,
No sweat!  It's in DSSSL!

	It's really cool!
	A useful tool!
	It's DSSSL!

"So tell me then, what does it look like?"
Afraid I can't -- nobody knows!
I guarantee you're gonna love it,
Just wait and see, that's how it goes.

	It's like a dream!
	It's based on Scheme!
	It's DSSSL!

The World-Wide-Web's gotta have stylesheets,
Or HTML's going to burst.
Will DSSSL come and save us
(Unless Netscape gets to it first)?

	Never fear,
	It's almost here!
	It's DSSSL!

So -- if -- FOSI's are driving you batty,
And PDF isn't enough,
This standard will solve all your problems
(But it isn't finished yet.  Tough.)

	It's amazingly great
	But you'll just have to wait
	For Dee-ess-ess-ess-ellllllll!

--Joe English

Hi Joe,
I am not sure if this is the drummer / actor Joe English or not...If so, I hope you are well...I was lucky enough to be in Texas in 1976 and got an LP signed by Wings....everybody signed this LP..unfortunatly you were not there...I have had this LP for 31 years and it is very important to me...If I were to send it to you, would you be so kind as to signed the LP for me...I would include a self- addressed pre-paid return envelope...I undersatand that you are a busy man, but would very much appreciate if you could do this...
Either way, I would like to thank you for all the great music over the years...Thank you for your time and I wish you all the best...
Joe H. Dumas
