This is important issue, because requirement to keep DTD accurate imposes certain
constraints on markup (for example DTD fails to catch errors like 
<a href="#top"><span><a href="#bottom">link</a></span></a>)
therefore it is better to know in advance whether normative DTD is required
or not (Relax NG could be more suitable as it admits more accurate content models then DTD).

All efforts will be made to keep markup clean and consistent, to avoid conflicts between 
presentational HTML elements and math oriented elements and to specify allowed 
nesting of elements properly.
