Hes, but on a web page the maintainer of the web page would clean them
up.  On forther thought web pages would not work to fix the problem in
the manner I would hope it would simply because this would require you to
be an irc person or active on lists or whatever to find out it's there.

So I still think experimental is not an optimal way to handle things, but
at this time I don't have a better idea.  =>
