Hello ,

This comment is sent from the CDF WG

  All HTML examples conform to the HTML 4.0 strict DTD (defined in
  [HTML40]) unless otherwise indicated by a document type declaration.
  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-CSS21-20050613/about.html#q15

They may do so, but unless they say so explicitly with a DOCTYPE
declaration they are not valid; furthermore HTML 4 does not have a
notion of well formedness or any lesser criterion than validity. HTML4
examples are thus either valid or junk.

Please do not put junk in your examples.

CDF WG requests that:

 - all examples conform to the minimum quality requirement, either well
 formedness for XML types or validity for HTML 4

 - all examples are available in separate files as well as inline in the
 specification

 - that a greater variety of markup languages be used (or alternatively
 the claim that CSS is applicable to all XML formats withdrawn). W3C
 specifications are a good initial source of other XML formats.

 - that the majority of HTML examples be XHTML.
