I think I found few not listed in errata "bugs" (or better "unwanted
features") in HTML 4.0 Spec. There are some discordances i.e.: in DTD
values of IMG's attribute BORDER are %Length type, but in Spec. they are
described as %Pixels etc. All conflicts I found are listed below:

	       | BORDER  | HSPACE   | VSPACE
 OBJECT [DTD]  | %Length   %Pixels    %Pixels
 OBJECT [SPEC] | %Pixels   %Length    %Length

	       | BORDER  | HSPACE   | VSPACE
 IMG [DTD]     | %Length   %Pixels    %Pixels
 IMG [SPEC]    | %Pixels   %Length    %Length

	       | BORDER  | HSPACE   | VSPACE
 APPLET [DTD]  |   ---     %Pixels    %Pixels
 APPLET [SPEC] |   ---     %Length    %Length

I found some more errors, but they are listed in errata (98/02/11 23:02:21)...

PS. Is this possible to get sources of HTML 4.0 Spec.?
PPS. Please, forgive me my weak command of Your language.
