I'll leave the vendors to comment on the redraws.  What I'll comment on is 
your HTML.  It would be much better to use HTML 4.0 and write:

  <HTML lang="it">
  <HEAD>
   	<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html;charset=iso-8859-1">

I don't think your <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Language" CONTENT="it"> has 
any effect.
