It's a leftover from when I tried to use XHTML-1.1 and faced endless 
browser incompatibilities and annoyances.

Leftover from previous shufflings.

I didn't even realize this until you mentioned it!

I'd rather not, since the current code is known to work (with quirks, 
alas). If you only want tidy because it makes the HTML more readable, 
would it suffice if you run it locally?

Sorry you have to go through this. If you need any help please notify 
me, although I cannot guarantee a timely response. I hope you do realize 
that because of the current maintainability issues we're trying to push 
a CMS-based system.
