Mmm... The 'W3CW' appears when you use Firefox, not IE...

I'm guessing this has to do with the Bidi characters I had to use to display the text correctly (since the HTML is generated from
the XML and we can't add a *real* <span dir="rtl">.

I'll try to find a solution.
Thanks for noticing.

Hello Yves,

Unfortunately there is a typo in all of these examples. 'W3CW'.

Cheers,
