  There's been a lot of opinions here, including mine, so I just want to 
  check something.  I think everyone would concur with the following.
  1. Making a page valid HTML 4 doesn't guarantee accessibility.
  2. Nevertheless, there are least some situations in which it's 
  strategically useful to start out asking for HTML Validity.
  Am I right that everyone concurs with both of these?
