>"Deprecated" comes from the Latin precari "to pray"

I first didn't believe it, looked it up, you're right.
When I was at it I also looked up 'deprecatio', its meanings are 'praying to 
turn away disaster', 'praying for forgiveness', but also 'intercession' and 
'(blasphemous) swearing'.

Interesting, isn't it?

A very nasty one this time: if you give a text block a 'position: relative' 
and a top and left that makes it position itself slighly over another block 
of text, the links in both blocks of text won't work any more.
