Dear Reader,

In using the following DTD

    This is HTML 4.0 Strict DTD, which excludes the presentation 
    attributes and elements that W3C expects to phase out as 
    support for style sheets matures. Authors should use the Strict
    DTD when possible, but may use the Transitional DTD when support
    for presentation attribute and elements is required.
    
    HTML 4.0 includes mechanisms for style sheets, scripting,
    embedding objects, improved support for right to left and mixed
    direction text, and enhancements to forms for improved
    accessibility for people with disabilities.

          Draft: $Date: 1998/04/06 08:22:15 $

I foundd a possible bug in the DTD.  When running nsgmls as
follows:

   nsgmls -s -e -g -wall /usr/lib/sgml/declaration/html.decl index.html

I receive the following errors:

  In entity HTML included from index.html:1:48
  nsgmls:/usr/lib/sgml/dtd/html-4.0s.dtd:371:0:W: unused parameter
    entity "MultiLengths"

  In entity HTML included from index.html:1:48
  nsgmls:/usr/lib/sgml/dtd/html-4.0s.dtd:733:0:W: unused parameter
    entity "CAlign"

thanks for all your work.
