Thanks for the reply, I ran a chunk through (html)tidy and came up with
8 errors and around 90 warnings related to  the \/ problem. The fix only
takes a second, but he's gotta be willing to do it on each page. Tidy
has a win2000 setting because of the well-known problems that arise when
win2K is used for producing web pages.
And yes, Mozilla gets as far as Opera, which I also really like.

By the way, Tidy fixes the problems automatically AFTER the errors are
fixed. The 8 errors were in the code word uses for round-tripping. Easy
search and kill routine.

Validator doesn't find the critical mistakes; I tried it also, but tidy
found it all--great little program.

You can look at the source code to see what a mess it is. I don't know
if wordXP has cleaned any of this up. I suspect it has.

Thanks much again for your reply and time. -- d
