It was convenient to use HTML 3.2 for the initial proof of concept.
There's nothing stopping anybody from making a similar module for HTML

In fact, as long as the characteristic values are always strings, it
would be relatively easy to write a script, e.g. a Perl script using
Earl Hood's module, to read an arbitrary DTD then write out the
flow object macros for the elements in that DTD.

Glad you find them useful.

Also, speaking as dssslist-owner for a moment, please don't quote
entire messages in your replies: it is preferable to quote only the
portions to which you are directly replying, and, as a previous poster
noted, it helps when the reply is clearly differentiated from the
quoted material.
