The implied schema for the fix-ups is roughly HTML 4.01 Transitional, because the fix-ups are based on browser behavior and browser behavior has been influenced by HTML 4.01 Transitional. The English "schema" for the higher-level HTML5 syntax is separate from the parser fix-ups. There is a non-normative RELAX NG plus Schematron schema in the works for the higher-level syntax. -- Henri Sivonen hsivonen@i... http://hsivonen.iki.fi/
