[thelist] Why do we say what we say?

I am compiling a list of things that web designer/developers often say,
without actually knowing the reason(s) why.


A couple of examples are having a space before the forward slash for
singleton tags (<br /> instead of <br/>) and having your CSS included above
your scripts.


I'm mostly looking for things that wouldn't show up in a validator, but
still have a reason for being that way.


Anyone have anything else? (or an answer to the <br/> thing? I have no idea,
to be honest.)
