He thinks his .sig somehow lends credence to his clueless trumpetting
and moral pronouncements.

Mind you, MS need DO a kick in the arse regarding Web Standards.

I have dabbled in xhtml recently and, well, it doesn't work properly
because of the damn MS browsers. Ditto for CSS - what should be an
elegant format layer turns into a hack mess because of IE not plying by
the rules. Not that the others browsers do 100% either - but MS are by
far the worst.

In view of all the deadly computer viruses that have been spreading
lately, Weekend Update would like to remind you: when you link up to
another computer, you’re linking up to every computer that that
computer has ever linked up to. — Dennis Miller
