This is completely wrong, and anachronistic. SGML was born long after TeX
It is true that LaTeX's syntax owes a debt to Scribe (as Lamport says
somewhere), and that
Scribe, Waterloo Script and similar systems were early forerunners of the
concept of structure/content distinction that
was later also taken up by SGML.
But in any case, none of this applies to Knuth's plain TeX, which was
developed independently as a software project
to typeset his own books.
