| Wrong.  Please cite a valid source for this if you are going to keep

To an HTML parser there is no need for SGML processing, everything in
the SGML declaration is a comment to an HTML parser...  I said HTML
PARSER!!!!!!!  To you SGML freaks that means "Something that knows
almost nothing, if not nothing about SGML!"...  Its not required nor
should ever be.  The argument is clearly that SGML is not a public
entity and HTML is.  SGML is targeted for a specific commercial or
governmental use.
