Webtv tech? Hahahahaha! Webtv doesn't HAVE techs, it's an ongoing joke
to naturally assume that they employ well trained chimpanzees.

As far as the webtv "editor" goes, that thing is useless, and anyone
who's been on webtv for more than a year KNOWS it is useless. The ONLY
way to get an even half-way DISPLAYABLE page out of it is to comment out
all of the unreachable code webtv adds itself, and then TRY to build
OVER it.....as far as validating goes.....NEVER EVER would a webtv
"pagebuilder" page validate......not even on the simplist level of HTML
3.2 tag soup terms!

The preferred ways for webtv webmasters to build websites is to either
sign up for a host that has an online text editor, such as wtv-zone.com,
tripod.com, or geocities.com does, OR, those webtv webmasters in the
know have their OWN online filemanagers run on PERL. If anyone is truely
interested in what a typical webtv PERL filemanager/editor looks and
works like, I'd be happy to post a .txt file of one to the list.  

The webtv browser has nothing to do with how webtv webmasters write
their HTML/XHTML coding, as it's in no way connected. We TYPE our coding
by hand, usualy refering to the multitude of tutorials out on the net
for our coding standards. This DOES cause a LOT of problems, since a LOT
of the "tutorials" out there on the net are BAD ones, written by other
people who don't know correct coding themselves. MOST webtv built
websites are HTML 3.2 tag soup, because most webtver's use www.Draac.com
to learn from, since most webtver's are introduced to HTML through our
VERY USER FRIENDLY html enabled email signature feature (which just so
happens to support and prefer HTML 3.2).

Hope that clears up webtv related questions some!

Seething
