I'm not someone from there, but here goes another GOAD element

Last time they mentioned DTD it looked like this:

From Alex Edelstein (alexd@netscape.com)

This is the second in a set of proposals that Netscape is submitting for
consideration by IETF and W3.

Note: We are holding off on submitting officially to the RFC Editor until
we can work up some adequate DTD ATTLIST and ELEMENT definitions.
Actually, we're looking around a bit for DTD experts...

It seems that nobody took a hint. People are usually looking for SGML experts
on comp.text.sgml. I've never seen a call from Netscape. hehe
