except of course the versions of the HTML dtd's
that mandate it and for which ...... given the
growing threat of XHTML - because while "everyone"
agreed to 'close' HTML's standards - no one could
agree that 'closing' the standards was the only standard...

so since XHTML is going xmlish - folks who are cribbing
HTML tricks should be more 'closure conscious'....

but we clearly agree, there are some standards, not quite
as many standards for HTML as there are for perl.....
