If we declare a dtd, and this dtd is a w3c dtd, we cannot use these...

    Oggetto: RE: [#1063] APPLET alt text and alternative content
    
    Regarding a proposed HTML technique about embed and applet, Roberto Scano 
    replied:
    <Roberto>
    Sorry, but embed and applet aren't elements that are not defined in any 
    W3C dtd?
    </Roberto>
    
    I think this raises an important issue about User agent supported 
    extensions.  Does Guideline 4.1,  "Use technologies according to 
    specification," preclude the use of these extensions if they are 
    accessible?   When I read the level 1 success criteria I am still not 
    certain that embed and applet are prohibited or not?  I definitely think 
    we need to make this clearer, but unfortunately I don't have any 
    wordsmithing proposals. 
    
    I am concerned about this issue because of the use of the contentEditable 
    and designMode attributes that are available on block level elements in IE 
    and Mozilla to implement HTML editing.  If JavaScript is enabled (and that 
    is another open issue) I can make a version of an HTML editor that is 
    accessible using WindowEyes.  Will this meet the 4.1 guideline?
    
    thanks,
