The linked text makes interesting reading, Jens, but
the reality is otherwise.  Google have launched a new
service, "Google sites", which could potentially lead
to millions if not milliards of new sites coming on-
stream, yet the most basic page that Google Sites
can produce contains over 80 errors.

I really would welcome an informed comment from you
(or from another member of the Google team) as
to why this fundamental requirement (validity of pages)
was ignored when launching this new service.
