It has been my experience that if someone is uninterested in validating
their markup, and equally uninterested in using a dictionary to
validate their spelling, there is little point is discussing anything
relating to HTML (or anything else) with them.

It is better to just ignore their childish prattle and get on with the
main business of this list (which they don't comprehend anyway), and in
time they will hopefully lose interest and return to USENET or AOL or
whatever rock they crawled out from under.
