I'm willing to quickly whip up a 'Stricter' version of the HTML 3.2 DTD that 
uses marked sections to remove FONT and CENTER, to remove PCDATA from the 
content model of BODY and DIV and maybe even restrict the content model 
of BODY to just include DIV and restrict the placement of headings to the 
first element of a DIV. It could be called "HTML 3.2 Structured"

Would anybody be interested?

Note: Any browser supporting HTML 3.2 would automatically support HTML 
3.2 Structured so there are no problems about document instances breaking 
current browsers.
