The Microsoft IE draft we released is intended to represent the HTML
code handled by Internet Explorer 2.0.  It is *not* intended (at this
point) to be a replacement for the HTML 3 DTD.  It is, however, a good
representative of what is supported by the major browsers out there -
notably, we tried to document <CENTER>, etc.

Absolutely correct.  The DTD we released is representative of Internet
Explorer 2.0.  We will in the future release a new DTD that represents
Internet Explorer 3.0, which will contain the newer table work as well
as stylesheet items.
