Thanks for the reply...

Then what is the point of using a custom DTD?

I am sure the <IMG> ALIGN="" attribute has the following possible values:
  a.. top
  b.. middle
  c.. bottom
  d.. left
  e.. right
  f.. absbottom
  g.. absmiddle
  h.. baseline
  i.. texttop
Why do the W3C recommended DTDs only offer:
  a.. top
  b.. middle
  c.. bottom
  d.. left
  e.. right
And why is the <LAYER> tag not supported by any of the DOCTYPES?
