While HTML 3.2 is everything I never wanted HTML to become, I confess
that it does codify pretty much what a browser would have to support
to survive in the current market. (The existence of the DTD may even 
encourage browser vendors to produce DTD-driven browsers!)

But HTML 3.2 falls way short of being an authoring DTD. What would be
nice is if "HTML 3.2 Strict" eliminated <FONT>, <CENTER>, etc.

"HTML 3.2" would be for browser developers.
"HTML 3.2 Strict" would be for authors.
