Yes, I know. And I *did* read it with a browser, but I still think
it looks silly. The "Please see here for more" is just very confusing,
because you have to check what the link leads to to determine more
about _what_ you're going to see. And the "back to index" links are
just a pet peeve of mine.

And my browser recognized it as HTML without renaming it. I just gave
it a filetype of HTML. :-)

Ok. One more question then, how do I find out what my NB is? :-)
I'm in the Netherlands.
