Yup. The type attribute is here only on account of its widespread
deployment in browsers. The W3C CSS working group is reviewing
a proposal for list styles which will provide a much more
effective solution. We plan to include a clean version of the DTD
as part of the Cougar spec, that will avoid such presentation
attributes or elements.

Thanks - this sort of typo will be cleaned up (we hope) before
the Cougar spec reaches recommendation status.
