By the way, there's a new HTML 3.2 draft spec out. It basically says that
the Netscape and Microsoft extensions are now part of the spec (except
frames and JavaScript). Here's a quote from about the new spec:

"HTML 3.2 is W3C's new specification for HTML, developed together with
vendors including IBM, Microsoft, Netscape Communications Corporation,
Novell, SoftQuad, Spyglass, and Sun Microsystems.
HTML 3.0 was a proposal for extending HTML published in March 1995.
... However, the difference between HTML 2.0 and HTML 3.0 was so large
that standardization and deployment of the whole proposal proved
unwieldy. The HTML 3.0 draft has expired, and is not being maintained."

The presentation people will be happy with this new spec. The SGML people
will be less happy. (Style sheets didn't make it in.)

There is also a move on the HTML lists to get the spec to allow the "SRC="
attribute for lists and list items so that you can choose an image for your
list bullets. That may also make it into the spec.
