In my experience people usually ignore Arena'a BAD HTML indicator, except
for their own documents, where they find it of great service. Perhaps
having error marking stylesheet-settable would be a good idea...

$HTML_ERROR : font.style = blink; font.color = yellow; back.color = red

(That would be in my own personal stylesheet, of course...)

If you *really* didn't want errors flagged, you could just ! insist on
normal display, and maybe even disbale the warning light.
