Terry, you might try Robin Cover's SGML/XML site at:

Try searching on "SQL" and/or "database" and/or "SDQL" (the latter a search
tool for SGML, I believe).

Another possibility... I don't know where it is in the pipeline, but I
believe Allaire Corporation is looking at something like what you're
talking about. They're the vendors of Cold Fusion, which -- through a Cold
Fusion Markup Language (CFML) extension to HTML -- enables Web pages to
query ODBC data sources by embedding SQL in special tags. (I think one of
their executives popped up on the XML-DEV mailing list a few months ago;
you might also try searching the list's hypermail index at Allaire is at:
