Oh, oh. Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa!

I'm glad some of this nonsense is my own doing. A least when it's my head 
that is broken I can start doing something about it.

As it turns out now, both the WDG HTML Validator and the validator at 
XHTML Validator 0.9 are OK, so I can very happily retract a lot of what 
I've said on this matter.

But the W3C validator is still talking nonsense.

Thank's for all the reactions. When I asked about this before there
was just a thundering silence.
