Dear Validators,

I just want to say how impressed I am with your first class Service to us 
lowly would-be-Webmasters!

When I decided to start my own Site, I didn't even know what an HTML Tag 
was! And I soon discovered that JavaScript must surely be an invention of 
the Devil! I just thank heavens above that I discovered the world's best 
Browser, Opera! When I started, it was Opera 5.12, now it's the magnificent 
Opera 7.5. Worthy of a starring role at La Scala!

Unfortunately, I didn't get clued into Validation until a few weeks ago. I 
used DOS to count the number of HTML Docs in the Site. A mere 2,652, that's 
all. And every single one is WRONG! Another couple of years and I should be 
finished correcting and validating!

The silly thing, of course, is that all my pages worked just fine. thank 
you, so I never suspected that anything was wrong!

The main errors were failing to close CENTER's and B's, etc, but I didn't 
have to because my CSS made it unnecessary. Also, I had 
used  ALIGN='MIDDLE' in TD's instead of CENTER. But it worked!

I think I may claim a record. My home page only had 165 errors, but my Site 
Map had 950! Is that a record, do you know?  (Thank the Lord for 
Microsoft's best work - Wordpad - and its "Find and Replace" feature!) 	
My Site is http://my-world-of-beauty.net, by the way.

I just finished the "Soviet Military Aircraft Section". That one took me 
over a week! (Thank God for Templates!)

Thanks again, guys and gals,
Jim Delaplante
Sliven, Bulgaria.
