    Now this is just plain patentic!

    I recently got a template monster account for a domain I bought and used their "site creation" gizmo tool ..... kind of neat, it generated everything I needed for the site in a couple of seconds and allowed me to download it.... a real timesaver I though and yes I knew it would be loaded with tables (which I would remove later) but then I started tinkering with the code to clean it up ... I was horrified to see this doctype at the top of every page:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN">


    HTML 2??????? My god wasnt that like 1980 something?

    How in heavens name can ANYONE distribute a program like that? The REALLY scarey part is when you change it to even 4.01 transitional the site absolutely EXPLODES!

    Its a decent looking site but man oh man do I have work to fix it!
