WebTV themselves have not come back to me with any DTD fragment, so I did it by deduction and guesswork: there were only a couple of uncertain bits. Despite your misgivings, most of their stuff in fact makes perfectly good sense for a TV-based browser. Some of the presentation stuff is a bit weak in the knees (<shadow> when <em class="shadow"> makes more sense) and the only real clanger was their implementation of <U> underlining as if it was a synonym for <UL>. Anyway, it's in there, and it fits without making a big noise, so I'm shipping a copy of the DTD to them for comment. My feeling is that they will need better authoring tools if content providers are to make pages work well for [Web]TV browser users, and adding it all to HTML Pro does at least give these people the option of using a real editor :-) ///Peter-- "Bother", said Pooh, as he deleted his root directory.
