Hello
I have a very basic question: first, here is what I'm trying to do.
I'd like to use roman numbers in my list, and this is the style info
I have in the head of my doc which does not work. 

<STYLE type="text/css">
OL.withroman { list-style-type: upper-roman }</STYLE>

And this is the body of the doc
<OL  class="withroman">
<LI>First Item
</OL>

I'm thanking that my dtd is not responding to my doctype id.
Would someone please let me know the correct place to install
the dtd? I've tried a number of  the new fetures of the 4.0 spec 
and couldn't get a response from them.


This is another of the examples from the spec that I can't 
get to respond

this is in the ex. sheet : P.special {
                             color : green;
                             border: solid red;
                             }

And this is in the head of the doc:  
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0//EN"
  "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/strict.dtd">
<LINK href="ras226.mindex.com/special.css" rel="stylesheet"
type="text/css">
<BASE HREF="http://ras226.mindex.com/education.html">

I placed the dtd which was included with the spec 4.0 in with 
the dtd of the W3C's inside usr/local/lib/sgml/

its not responding to request

Mac 68k, Mozilla 3.04 lots of ram
