Well, perhaps more than one step.  Suggesting there are
problems or quirks with the HTML 4.01 DTD isn't the same
as advocating anarchy.

In fact, I think even the HTML 4 Strict DTD has some real
ugly bits.

For one thing, the distinction between "inline" and "block"
elements is bogus, largely a concession to style.  You can't
<em>phasize a sequence of paragraphs.  Well, why not?
