You are 100% correct.  I didn't want to write a DTD for dtml (though
this is probably the "right" solution) so instead I went searching for 
other options.  Here's what I found:

If you use hm--html-mode, there's a variable called:
hm--html-tag-name-alist where I added some definitions for
dtml. (basically I just added dtml-in and a multi tag and dtml-var as
a single tag).  Then, I set up xemacs to use hm--html-mode for the
dtml stuff.  To do the indentation with hm--html-mode then, you have
to hilight the area you want indented, then hit TAB.  Problem solved!
And now I have beautifully indented dtml docs!!

If anyone wants a copy of what I put in my .emacs for the
tag-name-alist.  Let me know.
