HTML Dialects: Internet Media and SGML
Document Types W3C Working Draft 06-Mar-96
The HTML 2.0 specification, RFC1866, defines an SGML application and an Internet
media type. The specification notes that extensions are planned, but only
the text/html; level=2internet media type and the "-//IETF//DTD
HTML 2.0//EN" document type are defined. This document suggests the
use of URIs as system identifiers for document type definitions, allowing
decentralized evolution of the language. The use of marked sections as a
transition technique and the continued use of the level mechanism for
standardized points in the evolution path are discussed.
