I think I am wrong about the optgroup element.  it seems to stand just fine
without any child text.  so why should it need flow content?  I don't know it
attributes are flow content or not, but it has 1 attribute.

everybody seems to do option, dt, dl, and li tags their own way.  why?  because
the fact that they are singletons or open/close is not clearly delineated in
the spec.  please make this clear in the html and xhtml and wml specifications.

thank you.
