I was very pleased to see the site
passes XHTML, CSS, and "508 Standards" validation

and

I was also rather surprised *not* to see use of
the XHTML+RDFa DTD for

     http://www.w3.org/

nor even for

     http://www.w3.org/standards/semanticweb/

this redesign/relaunch would seem to be
a good opportunity to showcase
Web pages and sites which are part of
the Semantic Web which we are "pushing"

just my ever-shrinking $US 0.02 worth
