I just want to be sure we're all clear... "Tagsoup" is pretty much defined
as what a lot of us (at least me personally) went through when we first
started playing around with HTML, just kind of playing "monkey see, monkey
do" with our markup, right? It's like, "Oh, well, if putting this here does
that in this web browser, then that must be how it works! Neat!" without
knowing how it really works in the specs. Hehehe... I remember the days when
I used to use <br> instead of  <p> elements. :)
