Congrats, and slightly off-topic - can you, please, push google to
make at least their first page valid?
Whenever I advocate web standards there are inevitably people looking
what big names are doing.
When I throw my ace "look, microsoft.com and search.msn.com are valid
now!" they counter with "Ha! Take a look at google.com"...

Sure, validation is only a tool, but it would be great to cut the
nobody-cares-about-web-standards style of reasoning. "nobody" used to
mean microsoft ("web standards are irrelevant as long as M$ ignores
them", now it appears to be google.


Regards,
Rimantas
