Thank you for putting this together; it's really needed.

Does anyone know of a central location for GNU/HURD software, specifically

I fully support (HTML 4.0)/(XHTML 1.0) Strict -- I do all my Web pages in
it (sadly, my Web page is offline for a bit.). However, they are also
readable without CSS; no divs are used at all, in fact. Only true
structural elements are used by me, such as ul, ol, li, p, h1..h6, etc. I
would suggest using some of those elements instead of div -- it was make it
more readable on lynx, notscape, non-CSS browsers (i.e. CSS disabled), and
so on. Also know that I have made CSS positioning work on Notscape 4.x; see
http://ebooboo.org for a modification of my stylesheet for CSS positioning.

Either way, I'm very glad to hear that other Webgeeks use Strict
HTML/XHTML. It can make Web pages more accessable, which is what we want.
