        You can create lousy, unhelpful HTML with the freest of tools,
 Emacs. ANd you can create helpful content, WAP and cell phone
 accesible not graphical pure HTML pages with a proprietary editor.

        Lets not get overtly political and start refusing offers of
 help in good faith, shall we? God, this is a far cry from the early
 days of the FSF.
