Peter,

I'm aware of this W3C DTD, but as I mentioned before, I don't believe that
Mark or Dan or you or I can create an authoritive DTD for Netscape. A
reverse- engineered (even completely functional) Netscape DTD is one thing,
but to support a DTD not authored by Netscape in a commercial product is
something different.

I'm hoping we'll eventually see an ownerID of "-//Netscape//" someday. Yes,
I'm perhaps being overly optimistic.
