>Real simple question: What is a GI?

Until SGML-experts give a precise answer...

It stands for Generic Identifier and for practical purposes is (I think)
synonymous with Element Type Name in XML, i.e. <FOO> has a GI of "FOO".

Question in return, what exactly is delegation and can you give an example.
[It's been mentioned both in the context of Java classes and link-catalogs].
