Probably from the World Wide Web which changed the world in spite
of rather than because of, the existence of a DTD for HTML.
I sometimes hear SGML people claiming that SGML is a runaway
success because the Web is an SGML application. Insofar as
the Web is an SGML an application it ain't go no DTD in
any meaninful SGML sense.
