Firstly thanks for the offer of help with my XHTML coding, although I think
I have the hang of that now. ;)

As to whether it *could* be badly formed, that'll be up to Blogspot, not me.
As far as I can see they check the data that's posted in both the original
post and the comments section (since the page includes other people's
mark-up, not just mine), but I couldn't say whether there are holes in those

Having said that, the page loads fine in IE (which of course says nothing
about its well-formedness), Opera and Firefox. We usually find checking with
those browsers is enough for our work -- which browser are you seeing the
problem in?

All the best,
