New Web pages aren't meant to be relational
I'm building a program to check the general level of "wrongness" of the html in a web page. The formal definition of this is a DTD from the W3C. I've got a nifty parser built that seems to successfully build a DOM out of even the most hideous html and diagnoses things like unclosed tags and such as it goes. This gets me the general structural-ness stuff.

But for things like "you can't follow a table tag with a form tag" I'll have to go to the DTD. Turning a DTD into a useful data structure in memory has proven to be bloody challenging (although I think I just cracked it a couple minutes ago).

"Whenever you find you are on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect"   --Mark Twain

"The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them."   --Albert Einstein

"This is still a dangerous world. It's a world of madmen and uncertainty and potential mental losses."   --George W. Bush
