Very much so.  We've outlawed NetRadio around here because it chokes 
bandwidth.  BYOMP3 only.


<tip type="XHTML">
If you are starting to design for XHTML 1.0, one quick thing that will make 
your life easy if/when you switch to 1.1: when centering tables, don't use 
<table align="center">, use <div align="center"><table> because the former 
will validate in XHTML 1.0, but not in XHTML 1.1.
