There are a couple mentions of "HMTL" (should be: "HTML") in this  

The sequence <FOO /> can be interpreted in at least two different  
ways, depending on the DOCTYPE of the document. For HMTL 4.01 Strict,  
the '/' terminates the tag <FOO (with an implied '>'). However, since  
many browsers don't interpret it this way, even in the presence of an  
HMTL 4.01 Strict DOCTYPE, it is best to avoid it completely in pure  
HTML documents and reserve its use solely for those written in XHTML.
