thanks, that permitted me to notice that my version of the html specs is
outated. btw i dont see the point of not permitting optgroup tags to be
nested in html 4.01.

this is a portion of the example given in the html 4.0 specs
[...]
In this example we use the OPTGROUP element to create a hierarchy of
choices.
The hierarchy of choice represented by this SELECT element:
<FORM action="http://somesite.com/prog/someprog" method="post">
   <P>
 <SELECT name="ComOS">
   <OPTGROUP label="Comm Servers">
     <OPTGROUP label="PortMaster 3">
       <OPTION label="3.7.1" value="pm3_3.7.1">PortMaster 3 with ComOS
3.7.1
       <OPTION label="3.7" value="pm3_3.7">PortMaster 3 with ComOS 3.7
       <OPTION label="3.5" value="pm3_3.5">PortMaster 3 with ComOS 3.5
     </OPTGROUP>
     <OPTGROUP label="PortMaster 2">
[...]
