We weren't allowed to say who told us this, but in our SGML classes, we
always revealed the secret that the M$ folks actually used SGML to
their documentation for all their software.  We never did find out how
did the content processing to get end-product, though.  I'd imagine it
some type of home-grown tool so they would not have to buy some other
company's software.

M$ was one of the earliest adopters of SGML.
