Can I ask my dad to call your mom _after_ you gave her a few details
about that change ?-)

I'm with Chris here. Please keep in mind the early versions of Hotjava
had a green/red indicator for markup "validity", and it never hit the
whole web just because this kind of things is just like a radio signal
coming from outerspace to average web users. Useless, dangerous. People
don't want to see it because they don't have to see it. Make it an
extension available to web developers only, but never ever put that
into the main browser app.
