Hi Bruno and all!

I'm sorry, I have to laugh!  I always revalidate my pages after adding the
little tags because I am about as paranoid as they come.  I too am very
proud of those little icons and have a genuine sense of accomplishment there
are "no errors found".  But, the fear is always in the back for my mind that
the copy and pasted code may be wrong.  It really isn't funny, but, I found
it very amusing.  I just had a paranoid feeling that it was only a matter of
time.  :)    Thank you, Bruno, for sharing this!  I needed a good personal
moment today!
