Ah, now I understand.  No, I don't think that psgml is electric.
You'd have to do that yourself.  But it should be fairly simple.  How
about sharing the results?  Post psgml-electric.el to
gnu.emacs.sources :-)

>From Jargon File (4.3.0, 30 APR 2001) :

  frob /frob/ 1. n. [MIT; very common] The TMRC definition was "FROB =
     a protruding arm or trunnion"; by metaphoric extension, a `frob' is any
     random small thing; an object that you can comfortably hold in one hand;
     something you can frob (sense 2). See frobnitz. 2. vt. Abbreviated
     form of frobnicate. 3. [from the MUD world] A command on some MUDs
     that changes a player's experience level (this can be used to make
     wizards); also, to request wizard privileges on the `professional
     courtesy' grounds that one is a wizard elsewhere. The command is
     actually `frobnicate' but is universally abbreviated to the shorter
I got it from
A turnip curses Elvis
