    Ok, I'm trying to do this by rebinding the return key. This is for
sgml-mode, where I'm doing it like so:

(defun my-sgml-mode-hook ()
  "My personal sgml mode customizations."
  (setq sgml-indent-step nil)
  (setq sgml-indent-data nil)
  (define-key sgml-mode-map [RET]
    '(lambda ()

    This apparently shows up in the sgml-mode-map, but when I go into an xml
file in sgml-mode (with help from xxml-mode), and do a C-h k RET, it says that
the key is still bound to newline. How can that be? Why isn't this working?
