Pass, not me.

Ditto, not me.

My own platform at http://www.debian.org/vote/2006/platforms/93sam
validates as "Valid HTML 4.01 Strict", using the w3c validator. My own
pages at http://www.einval.com/~steve/ are targeted at either that or
HTML 4.01 Transitional, and as far as I'm aware most (if not all) of
them validate correctly too.

I don't have as much time to spend on my web pages as I'd like, which
is why I've not yet updated to an XHTML DTD. It's on my TODO list, but
there are a lot of things above it yet... :-)
