Which version of the draft does this MARK element appear in? I don't see it in
the 19-Jan-95 html3 DTD that appears at

 <http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/MarkUp/html3-dtd.txt> and at
 <http://www.w3.org/pub/arena/html3-dtd.txt>
 
Checking the local saved copy I use with html-check:

cguhpc [56]: grep Draft html-3.dtd
        Draft: Thu 19-Jan-95 12:02:46
cguhpc [57]: grep MARK html-3.dtd
cguhpc [58]:

Is there a more recent version? What is the URL?
