Oops. The 'written by DWC' bit was meant to be referring to the
HTML.DTD. Guess I wasn't clear enough. :|

As a seperate thread, what do people think about Netscapism's?
I normally use lynx as my WWW browser (I use Linux, and it's not
usually worth my while to go into X with 8MB of memory), and some
``Netscape enhanced'' pages look _absolutely_ terrible.
The best one I've seen (for terrible-ness) was a page where
the first letter of each word was enlarged using <font size+1>
(or whatever the correct one is).
For a commercial web-site, ie one that provides services etc,
is it a good idea to check the web-pages usings SGMLS and HTML.DTD
to make sure they conform (just as a courtesy to the users)?
Also, what's the state of the HTML 3 DTD? Is there one I can
download from somewhere (w3.org?) or is it still in a state of
flux? (I have tables on my pages and I'd like to check them
using a DTD+SGMLS).
