Er, no.  Not unless you're using an SGML declaration with NET 
enabled.  If HTML even has an SGML declaration (doubtful given 
that 99.9999999999999% of the community doesn't know what one 
is) I'm pretty confident that it doesn't enable NET.  

Or are you saying that there is an SGML decl that nobody's
ever seen and that it does enable NET? -Tim
