Yes, thinking about this, this could be a better way to go. A way of
turning off the white space above or below the header would be nicer
perhaps. It would also enable a few other things to be done easily too.

.... Yeah, a lot more flexible at the same time as being more "correct".

@ What I want to prevent is the HR being used in another way than as a
@ block separator. Something like "<H1>Hi<Hr>there</H1>" strikes me as
@ abuse, and your proposed change to the DTD would allow that.

*grin* Just tried it in Lynx and Mosaic and erm it works... or breaks so
to speak.

So what would the additional rules be then?

<H# rule=bottom> miss out whitespace under a header?
<H# rule=top> miss out whitespace above a header?

That would accomplish things quite nicely I guess. And again as usual,
backwards compatibility wont be affected. :)
