   IMHO, the 'browser wars' have turned positive. Remember that Navigator
   is still the #1 browser, and Netscape's solution to every user request
   for more control of presentation has been a new HTML tag, often
   entirely inconsistent with previous tags and unnecessarily limited in

BTW does anyone know what the <entity> tag in the MSIE DTD is supposed
to be for?

   You crave full SGML. Could anyone hope for full SGML on a web-wide
   scale while the major UA supplier scoffs at DTDs?

Replace "scoffs at" with "doesn't understand"
