gotcha, i didn't look closely enough, nor expect you generate that  
list dynamically from my setup: excellent work.

Strict sets people's browsers into a take no prisoners mode that is  
very unforgiving of poor html: it is basically asking for lots of  
pages to break with no good reason.

Also, you can stick an advert for textmate in the template. what  
would suit me is below.
