Without wishing to make life more complex for everything, it should be
able to do HTML 4.01 as well; there are still problems with XHTML (by
which I mean which content-type it's served as -- serving it as xml
doesn't work in all browsers and serving it as html means that browsers
treat it as tag soup), so I'm still using 4.01 Strict for most


Soon -- as it measured time -- it would have work to do once again.
Thousands upon thousands of worlds.
