	If you're indicating intend to update the HTML 3.0 DTD so
that it retains *all* of the sound, much needed, and desired markup
that was omitted from the so-called 3.2 draft despite having been
implemented in clients such as EmacsWWW, UdiWWW and Lynx, so that
the updated DTD includes additional markup from the so-called 3.2,
and from RFC1942 (TABLEs) and RFC???? (i18n), and can be installed
for selection at the validation services, a perhaps small percentage
of Webizens, but very, very large absolute number of people, would
greatly appreciate that.
