So, one of the reasons why I want to make my HTML look pretty is so that I can fix bugs in it. Another way of fixing bugs is to use a validator.

Unfortunately, my code has no <!DOCTYPE> and is full of ljisms (never mind the crappoor quality HTML that people sometimes put in their entries). I don't really want to advertise it as any particular 'proper' type of HTML, because it isn't really. Is there anything stopping me from creating my own DTD with the typical ljisms in it, and advertising it as that?

Will that even work?

I don't know of any reason you couldn't feed a cod-HTML document with a suitably modified DTD to nsgmls or similar.

I parsed that as l-jisms. I don't think that's what you meant.
