Hm, but at least there's a 

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2//EN">

in it, and in HTML 3.2 the <BIG>, <FONT> and-so-on-stuff is completely
legal...

See also http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/MarkUp/Wilbur/HTML3.2.dtd for the
SGML-aware out there.  Actually, what the DTD says about font-level
formatting is IMHO relatively nifty as far as HTML goes ;-).  But then
again, <FONT> is of course a bow to Netscape.
