Hi all,
(this is a one-off posting to the mailing list, more as a general point
than a discussion, so any important feedback to myself should go direct
to my email address - bad form I know, sorry)

Having just looked at the Vaildator site with Lynx, I noticed that the
the list of links down the right hand side, aren't actually marked up as
being a list, and hence needs to use the <span class="hideme">|</span>
to make the links appear separate. Having thought this was a good idea,
I checked my site (which does have correctly makred up lists), and
noticed that Lynx adequately displays these as such (hence, no need for
the display:none; hack).

Why would the homepage from a (X)HTML validation service not correctly
display the semantic markup it needs? (Obviously not a CSS issue as
such, otherwise they wouldn't be using the "hack" mentioned above)...
