In http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/MarkUp/Wilbur, the DIV element is defined as: DIV document divisions Requres start and end tags. It is used with the ALIGN attribute to set the text alignment of the block of elements it contains. ALIGN can be one of LEFT, CENTER, or RIGHT. Why is there no mentioning of its structural purpose of grouping together related elements. The FrameMaker HTML Export facility I'm working on will create documents like <HTML> <HEAD>...</HEAD> <BODY> <DIV CLASS="Chapter"> <DIV CLASS="Section"> </DIV> <DIV CLASS="Section"> ... </DIV> </DIV> <DIV CLASS="Chapter"> <DIV CLASS="Section"> </DIV> <DIV CLASS="Section"> ... </DIV> </DIV> </BODY> </HTML> There is no alignment implied. Am I missing something. Is this reasonable HTML 3.2 markup? By the way, is there an HTML 3.2 spec? I found a DTD and a features at a glance document, but no spec.
