Oh come on! Don't you remember last millennium, when we coded that  
way for html 2.0 (or something).

Hugh has to learn to separate format from content.

He needs css. then he has to unlearn the bad habits we all unlearned!

the snippet should be written as :

<body>
<p>
...

with the rest done in css.


XHTML is not just HTML formatted pretty... it is  a departure from a  
hard to maintain web to a place where designers can design and  
content providers can provide content!


I am done preaching for a while.
