I like that reply, Normally i like to defer to Jukka especially on the
Valid HTML icon. But in this case i feel that there is a case for
Comments. Yeah, ok, they may add to a page but it would take a lot of
comments to even equal the overhead of one spacer GIF. On a scale of
no-no's this is a minnow compared to the Moby Dick-ensian mess put out
by Word or Frontpage.
