Put something like this at the bottom of chap*.sgml.
<!--=20 Local Variables: mode: sgml sgml-declaration: "chapter.decl" sgml-indent-data: t sgml-omittag: nil sgml-always-quote-attributes: t sgml-parent-document: ("book.sgml" "part" "chapter") End: -->
Where "../chapter.decl" contains this line.
<!doctype chapter public "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook V3.1//EN">
If your chapters are direct children of the <book> element, without any intervening <part> elements, change the last line to
sgml-parent-document: ("book.sgml" "book" "chapter")
replace "book.sgml" with whatever the name of your master document is.
The FreeBSD project uses this technique extensively. Take a look at
for more examples.
