Ok, that's good to know. I wouldn't expend energy converting our  
current site back to HTML 4.01 but we can keep it in mind for the  
next rewrite of the site (or use HTML 5 if the specification is  
finished by that time). I tentatively agree with those who were wary  
of using HTML 5 now, before the spec is finished.
