I just had a look at the preview of the new home page. While it looks very good 
(well done!) in both Internet Explorer 2.0 and Opera 5.10 (the browsers 
on my new old box - no Netscape, WfW or Calmira due to lack of space and 
the floppy cable is too short so only a 5.25" floppy is connected at the 
there are still a few bugs, for example I found the following ones in the bug 

  <font face="Verdana, Arial" size="3" color="#FFFFFF">

AFAIK 3 already is the default size, and there is no generic font family 
The line should read:
  <font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" color="#FFFFFF">

The next one:

<tr><td bgcolor="#FFFFE0">
  <font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2" color="#000000">

<!-- What is the line above good for? There is no text it can be applied to ... 


<!-- comments -->

<p><b>B0041 : Large Internet icon will not show</b><br> [...]

<!-- ...since P is a block-level element and therefore the inline element FONT 
must be defined inside of it! Only tag soup browsers will display this as 
intended. -->

The same mistake:

<font face="Courier New" size=3><pre>

<!-- PRE is a block-level element! -->

This should read:

<pre><font face="Courier New, Courier, monospace">

In addition, there is no doctype declaration. I'd suggest:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

The W3C validator saysthe same, just in a more complicated way:

Just thought I'd add my $0.02.

PS: Please excuse missing spaces- this iscaused bythespace bar on this keyboard.
