OK folks,
         The emacs browser allows an HTML document to define its own
additional entities, is this legal in an HTML 3.0 document? If so how
would I define such a thing and still have a conformant SGML document?

How about something like:

<!DOCTYPE HTML-3.0
[
    <!ENTITY that CDATA "&thorn;&aelig;t">
]>
<HTML-3.0>
...
&that;
...
</HTML-3.0>

Assuming this is legal, does/will "Arena" support this?

    Tony
