Karl -

iframe might be a workable solution, if there was a reliable way to signal
to a browser to use an older HTML spec, not just the quirks/standards mode
dichotomy.

To come back to the root of the issue. If I understood the request, a  
document that would be composite. For example, let's say, html5  
document including an html 3.2 document. Would the iframe element[1]  
solve this?


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

<head>
<title>an html5 document</html>
</head>

<body>
<p>a paragraph here</p>
<!--the html 3.2 markup here in the iframe -->
<iframe src="http://example.org/doc-html32"></iframe>
</body>

</html>
