Hear, hear. Baseline it and let's wring it out.

I've made another change which I've kept back that adds a <BODY> tag because a search engine (based, as it happens, on Kevin Hughes's SWISH) needs either a </HEAD> tag or a <BODY> tag to know where to put the <BASE TARGET=> tag for the page the search engine generates.

Put me down as strongly in favor of full <HEAD> and <BODY> containers. And is a DTD too much to hope for?

On another subject, do we ever intend to take up SWISH on this list?
