Oh good.  Then you should have absolutely no trouble explaining this:

  <TD align=left vAlign=top><!--[if gte vml 1]><v:rect id=_x0000_s1025
  style="HEIGHT: 8.25pt; MARGIN-LEFT: 16.5pt; MARGIN-TOP: 3pt;
  POSITION: absolute; WIDTH: 9pt; Z-INDEX: 1"
  coordsize = "21600,21600" o:insetmode = "auto" filled = "f"
  fillcolor = "winColor(1)" strokecolor = "winColor(1)"><v:fill
  color2 = "winColor(17)"></v:fill><x:ClientData
  </x:ClientData></v:rect><![endif]--><![if !vml]><span style='mso-
  width=13 height=12 src="./generic_req_files/image003.gif"
  style="mso-ignore: vglayout2">

Of course, I'm not holding my breath.
