Nah, I think you're pretty objective, especially for an employee.
Besides, it's not like your sig line doesn't say you work for
Macromedia.  Also, I haven't seen anything in your posts that could
possibly be biased, as it seems to has been factual and not opinion.

All blanket statements are bad.

Ok, I owe, I know.

Can't wait to get your grubby little paws on the next version of
ColdFusion server?  The prerelease for ColdFusionMX is already
available.  Get it here:

<tip type="Website performance">
Did you know that capitalization is important in your hyperlinks, even
if you use IIS or another non-case-sensitive web server?

Here's why:  Many webservers are case-sensitive, meaning if you develop
and save a page called 'MyPage.html', and then try top open it in a web
browser as 'mypage.html', the web server will retutn a 404 error (page
not found).

In order to accommodate all webservers, IE will keep separate cached
copies for 'mypage.html', 'MyPage.html', 'mYpAgE.hTmL' (for you l33t
h4x0rs out there), etc...  Which means if you reference the same page
capitalized 4 different ways, your users may have to download the page 4
separate times instead of seeing the much faster cached copy the last 3

So, beside the fact that it's good practice to be consistent in your
naming conventions and their usage within your pages, now you have an
extra reason to do it right!
