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...)
