Hello John,
In the code of the page, right after the last text Jaws reads, is a strange

It looks like someone did a bad copy-paste job. Because of this unclosed
tag, the page does not validate either. I hope somebody can fix it.

I just visited the Quicktips page so I could get the text and incorporate
the tips in a presentation I'm giving tomorrow. Something odd is going on.
Here is a transcript of how JAWS 5.1 reads the page at
Everything is just fine except that the "reference text" doesn't appear to
