[thelist] Which HTML (W3C validator)

Hi David,

I'm not a doctype guru by any means, but I recently had a dynamic php
page that I really *wanted* to validate to 4.01 Strict - so I could put
that cute little w3c graphic on it.

Anyway, the generated 'head' section looks like this.  It's baby-CSS,
but if your only problem is the bgcolor, this should get you
domineering, uh - I mean severe, ooops  - lets make that strict
validation.  {I dunno - somehow it reminds me of nuns: "You're using
bgcolor?  Hold out your knuckles while I get my ruler!"}

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<title>Title Stuff</title>
<style type="text/css">
body {background-color = "000000"}
div {text-align: "center"}
h1 {color = "70A7C2"}
p {color = "70A7C2"}

4.01 Strict had a problem with <body> bgcolor (!)

If I can't use <body bgcolor...> in 4.01 strict, the implies to me that
I need to use CSS for all formatting?
