Which most people aren't capable of doing let alone have an interest. A 
lot of people on this list seem to forget just how much knowledge they 
have by virtue of they're interest in this field.

Ask most ICT professionals how to implement user CSS for instance and 
they won't have a clue.

Web acessibility is a bl**dy specialised field and users should not have 
to know very much in order to enjoy the benefits of the web.

Stupid little things like specifying px in css when you *know* what 
effect it has in the most prevalent browser (by a massive margin) just 
strikes me as assinine and down-right perverse. Especially when ther's 
absolutely no need.
