Subject Re: [PATCH] Adding DOCTYPEs to server-generated HTML
Date Sat, 15 Feb 1997 10:42:50 GMT
There is no DOCTYPE called "-//IETF//DTD HTML 3.2//EN".

There is one called "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Draft//EN", but it isn't
valid since (last I checked) W3C was not an ISO-approved publisher
and therefore has no ability to define DOCTYPEs.

IMHO, it is a waste of bytes -- even SGML apps like HotMetal can handle
HTML without a DOCTYPE, and there is no point in announcing compliance
with a draft proposal.
