It's another expensive module of SAS. Actually, Enterprise Guide
itself isn't expensive, but it requires the Integration Technologies
module on the server, and IT is *very* expensive. I'm not directly
involved in the purchasing process, but I seem to recall that it more or
less doubled our license fees.

I haven't heard anything about when it might become part of SAS. EG is
a Windows program, so the Style Editor, like the Enhanced Editor, might
not be available on other platforms. But at least they've written the
code and figured out what they have to do, so it's at least conceivable
that they might port it.

Probably by SUGI. A bit of ODS DOCUMENT is available in version 8.
