Ok, in preparation to get down and dirty with an HTML "lint" (hey, can
anyone think of a catchy name for this program? "html-lint" just doesn't
cut it with the home crowd at Peoria :), I've prepared a document of
common errors and things to avoid in HTML composition. It doesn't really
say anything new or exciting that isn't in the specification or style
guide, but it does (hopefully) place them all in the same document for
Handy Reference (tm). (Note, please, that this is still a *rough
draft*) Please check out

and comment on it. Specifically, is there anything else that should be
in there? Is there anything that shouldn't? Are any of my assumptions

I'm also thinking about hanging some subdocuments off of it that give
examples of the mistakes, etc. Any comments? (And if anyone wants to
contribute such a subdocument...)
