turning on SGML mode

Dear all,

I abuse Emacs for my typesetting, i.e., I use Emacs with the psgml
extension to edit XML documents (where Emacs gives me context-dependent
menus and automatic syntax checks), translate the XML file to LaTeX,
and convert the outcome to PDF.

My XML file starts with

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE book SYSTEM "$ATXHOME/xml/book.dtd">

and I invoke Emacs by

emacs -l $ATXHOME/interface/cfg_emacs.el -geometry +0+0

where cfg_emacs.el contains definitions of menu points etc.

My problem: Whenever I start Emacs, I need to enter

        ESC x sgml-mode

manually. I tried to add

(setq-default major-mode 'sgml-mode)

to the configuration file, but that does not turn on
the SGML mode. What am I doing wrong?

Kind regards,
