Can I just confirm that the following is INCORRECT:

</HEAD>
<script language='JavaScript'>
<!--
w=650;h=60;
function bpo(){var
nw=window.open('http://banners.directnic.com/java.html','AS2957135573','widt
h='+w+',height='+h);nw.focus();}
//-->
</script><BODY

The script that is added by the server daemons for banner ads, inserts it
BETWEEN the closing </head> tag and the opening <body> tag. Shouldn't this
appear BEFORE the </head> tag? Am I correct in believing that this is
incorrect HTML?

The support guy at DirectNIC is very sure of himself, and gives the
impression that DirectNIC does no wrong..

Well, the Validator certainly does not insert a NUL byte. That leaves
DirectNIC or Homesite. My money would be on DirectNIC and their banner ad
code.

Feel free to send DirectNIC my way if they would like assurance that it's
not the Validator inserting the NUL.
