Can someone tell me what the 2nd of these sentences
means...

'Validating to a published formal grammar and
declaring that validation at the beginning of a
document lets the user know that the structure of the
document is sound. It also lets the user agent know
where to look for semantics if it needs to.'

from http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10-HTML-TECHS/#doctype

and also if this ability to 'look for semantics' is
used in any current 'User Agents'.

Cheers
Graham Oliver
