I will be suggesting to the W3C I18n WG that HTML 4.01's SGML
declaration should follow XML's in allowing all sorts of extra
characters as NAMECHAR.

This is not to allow native language markup of element names or
attribute names, per se (even though that will be useful for XHTML) but
to allow IDs in native languages.

Can you consider this for HTML 4.01 anyway?  Thanks.
