Perhaps we should have all three.
<FIXED> newlines not significant anchors PCDATA
<PRE> newlines significant no anchors RCDATA
<XMP> newlines significant no anchors CDATA
I understand that these are the only SGML-conformant combinations. Is this too
much of a mess?
Tony, can you make a similar patch for <fixed> as above for Midas?
I have put Dan's new spec (which contains <typewriter> -- what's going on,
Dan?!) in the web at
http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/MarkUp/Connolly/MarkUp.html with a link from
the current spec. The DTD was not in the tar file, so Dan's previous one is
linked in. This includes all Dan's test HTML.
I would like to include <HEADER> and <BODY> tags too.
