Hi all,
  Sorry for asking a so stupid question. But is there any browser
respecting the HTML 4.01 Doctype ?
  For instance my problem is this table (extracted from:
http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/tables.html#h-11.3.2):

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<html><head>
 <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;
charset=iso-8859-1">
 <title>test</title></head>
<body>

<TABLE border="1">
<COLGROUP>
<COL><COL align="char" char=".">
<THEAD>
<TR><TH>Vegetable <TH>Cost per kilo
<TBODY>
<TR><TD>Lettuce        <TD>$1
<TR><TD>Silver carrots <TD>$10.50
<TR><TD>Golden turnips <TD>$100.30
</TABLE>

</body>
</html>

I would like to apply a style to a particular column of my table, and I
thought <COL> was the best way to do it.
But I found any browsers (I tried Mozilla 1.0/Konqueror 3.0/Opera
6.03/Netscape 4.78) able to produce the right formatted table. Or else
should I consider moving to xhtml 1.0 ?

thanks
mathieu
