Thank you both! I can't get HTML-Kit's Validator to put the !DOCTYPE
declaration in correctly for XHTML 1.1, so I usually just add it in after I
run it through, and I completely forgot to do that today. :-)

And thank you for the compliments on my code and my dogs. I try to have both
be easy on the eyes. :-)

Again, thank you.

Take care,
Derek
