Thanks; I think that validity is a worthwhile feature;
especially if you are going to be using CSS a lot.
Actually, it's possible to make invalid documents using LaTeX2HTML,
but you have to be trying to do so, more or less. :-)
You may be interested in looking at www.freedevelopers.net .
Note in particular the attributions on those pages.

Is there much difference to Babel's german.ldf ?
If not, just copy or link german.perl so that it is also
accessible as ngerman.perl .
That should work reasonably as a stop-gap until a proper ngerman.perl
can be constructed, accounting for the differences.

I already have written versions/html4_01.pl
It's at the developer's archive now; at least when using CVS.
Thanks for reminder to put it there. :-)
Please report any errors that you may notice.

Teaching finishes next week, so I'll have more time
to incorporate any additions to LaTeX2HTML.
