The DTD for HTML - _could_ be constructed to allow such idioms, but I don't think - that would be a good idea, and most of the folks in the working - group agree with me. - You might say "but that markup works fine on all the browsers - I've seen." My answer is that this is a happy coincidence, but - no browser should be _required_ to support that sort of - thing -- and you shouldn't _expect_ it to work with tools - that may be developed in the future. As a relatively new member of the list, I would appreciate a pointer to a succinct summary of which tags can be embbeded with which other tags. I would like to conform to HTML standards, but have not seen a clear statement of embedding precedence, if that's a concept.
