A friend of mine is writing HTML for a meteorologist company, and he refused to
even look at the w3c standards and instead wanted to see a guide that was
easier to understand. He's not a web developer, he's a meteoroligst student,
but he's doing an internship where they expect him to write code and HTML to
format its output. Luckily, they use Mozilla because they have all Unix servers
and workstations.
