Cool! An iCab user. Nice browser, isn't it? :-)

iCab is beeing a little overzealous here I think. It's not a complete
validating SGML Parser, it just uses some form of internal syntax tables. I
/think/ that right angle brackets do not strictly have to be escaped. I'll
check up on it -- and report it to the iCab people if necessary -- but I'll
start encoding them just to be on the safe side in any case.

Thanks for your feedback on this.
