        Dear www-html-ers,

        So far I've only had one reply which just put a  form in a cell.
        That I can do.  What I can't do is get it to validate. 

        I'm validating with  James Clark's nsgmls, aka SP,  and the 3.2 DTD.
        It closes a table when it sees <FORM>.  This seems wrong to
        me.  Is there a reason for it? I admit I'm not fully conversant in
DTDish,
        but it looks to me like it ought to be valid.  It works fine even in
lynx,
        (except that it introduces a linebreak after the </form> )

        I'd also like to echo the query about WIDTH as an attribute of a cell.
        Why is it removed from 3.2?  It validates with the Netscape DTD, 
        and I believe with the old 3.0 (not certain on that one). 

        I'd really appreciate an answer from a guru out there.. 

        Thanks,
