Hello web guys,

I cant see a website with a new Opera webbrowser, it is black letters on a dark blue 
field.   This site can be viewed OK with M/S internet explorer.

     http://keir.net/portlist.html

I am concentrating on throwing hackers out of my system, and tripped over your
web validation site.  It is of great interest to me.  Would someone please look at the 
attached output from a trojan website,  and tell me if it looks legitimate.
Of particular interest are the multiple communications calls. Is that normal?
  I have found a pack of liars and Frauds on the internet regarding hacking and 
perhaps your web analyzer can help me determine quickly if a website is bogus?
I am not interested in authoring a website, I am interested in spotting suspect 
behavior! 
I will be pleased to discuss this or hacking with anyone.

Thanks,   Bill   
see attached:    robin.txt   (it is the output from W3C website for 
http://keir.net/portlist.html)

Some Web sites are badly written, to the extent of crippling a browser. The first thing you 
should do when you come to a site that looks as if it might have source code problems is try to 
validate the Web page at the W3C's HTML validation service, 
which will give you a rudimentary report, based on the standard of the type of document the Web page 
claims to be, and how close to the standard the document actually is. If the Web page comes through 
all right, there really should not be any problems with it in Opera.
