If that's how you feel about it, perhaps you should refer to my message of 
December 19 which I sent to this list and to you personally -- which, 
interestingly enough, you made no response to -- that contains a URL to a 
valid example that, thanks to the log entry included in the message, 
_clearly_ demonstrates the statement: 

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2001Dec/0025.html

This also is not comp.sys.browser.my_companys.advertise, but since you have 
no reservations about using it as such, the least you could do is tell the 
truth.  Don't preach to me about raising my standards.
