Oh, that's much better. I didn't even realise that was possible[1]. 

With that in mind, I'd like to change my proposal to
"+//IDN whatwg.org//DTD HTML 4.01 plus Web Forms 2.0//EN" 

As Hixie and Jim have both mentioned, it's likely to change when it's 
standardised. 

If we want to be able to refer to a particular version, we can provide both 
'specific', dated, versions, and also a 'latest' version, like the W3C do 
with the following HTML DTDs: 

* 'Latest' HTML 4.0 DTD (currently HTML 4.01):
  http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/strict.dtd
* Specific HTML 4.0 DTD (HTML 4.01):
  http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/strict.dtd
* Specific HTML 4.0 DTD (HTML 4.0):
  http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/REC-html40-19980424/strict.dtd

Malcolm
