There's not one, but four errors in the style sheet above. Can you
find them? Here's one solution:

   <head><title>Portable Network Graphics</title>
   <style type="text/css"><!--
   body {background: white; color: black }
   h1, h2, h3 {font-family: helvetica, arial, sans-serif }
   --></style>
   </head>

The person who is responsible for this document, Chris Lilley, has a
very valid excuse for not fixing them himself. Find out why from [1].
