Known bug (by me anyway... the Spyglass folks should take heed...)

The HTML DTD Reference was generated by a perl script. Nifty, huh?
Unfortunately, I never got around to teaching the perl script about
inclusions and exclusions.

To be clear: Form inside form is NOT legal.

Correct, as far as I know, and as far as the present DTD is concerned.

Anyone who has a problem with this should speak now or forever hold
your peace. :-)
