You know – I’ve seen a lot of anti-XHTML hate out there that boils down to a “if you can’t do it right, don’t do it” sentiment. Your problem with Blockbuster’s “XHTML” is a good illustration of the problem. Bad XHTML poisons the waters, so to speak.
By the way, do you have “Mastering Regular Expressions”? Isn’t that a great book? It’s one of those books where you have to pause after every paragraph and think, “this information changes my entire understanding of the universe!”

Poisons the waters and ruins my evening that’s for sure. I mean, how hard is it to close your friggin’ img tags?
I don’t actually have that book, I’ve picked up my limited regex skills from http://www.regular-expressions.info/
I’ve come close to picking up that book a couple times though and if it’ll change my understanding of the universe it sounds like I would be wise to do so.

Would it be wise or would there be drastic consequences for us all.
