See here http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/fbml/ that Facebook
itself is going to deprecate the FBML. Their advice is to use a JS API
instead or you can use a simple IFRAME versions of the social plugins (where
avaliable) which do not require FBML tags and for my experience are much
quicker anyway.
