Hi david, thanks for the email,

So is it possible to Increase the ATTCNT in the SGML declaration used with
custom DTDs. On the W3C validator?

Regards
steve

Google found me http://htmlhelp.com/tools/validator/changelog.html.en

I belive the WDG Validator has a shared ancestry for the SGML parser
used in the W3C Validator, so this is likely the same issue.

"""

      DTDs. This makes it possible to add a larger number of
      attributes to elements such as EMBED.
"""

This suggests that it is possible to resolve, but needs a change to
the validation service.

(Please direct responses to www-validator and not directly to me,
thanks).
