Users seem happy with the present HTML 2.0 DTD

I just got yet another "vote of confidence" for the HTML validation
service Mark Gaither and I put together. We had some trouble earlier
on with filling up filesystems and swap space because the perl scripts
didn't clean up after themselves...

But we solved those problems, and we have had hundreds of accesses of
this service.

But we have had _not one_ message complaining about "why can't I
put H5 inside a P?" or any other problems with the DTD.

So I conclude that HTML 2.0 satisfies the needs of many users.

This makes me feel _very_ conservative about changing it. :-)

I'd just like to say that you've done a great job with the HTML
Validation Service. I've found it extremely useful.
