[thelist] website is a blank page, part 2

I always start with the CSS on the same page while developing a website,
since it is so much easier to make changes to CSS right on the same page,
and then I move it out when the site is finished. I guess I will move this

Works also in IE - but fails on Konqueror, which is not surprising as WebKit
is derived from KHTML.

And funny enough, it seems that Safari and Konqueror are doing the right
thing :-)

And sure it validates, as in HTML you don't have to close your elements
- or comments... And it so happens to be, that this document is just one big
comment since the <style> tag :-)

<tip type="html comments" author="kasimir-k"> If you hide your styles or
scripts from older browsers using html comments, remember to close those
comments - otherwise you are hiding the entire document from some newer

Don't include your styles (or scripts for that matter) in your documents
- use external styles (and scripts) instead. You'll be happier that way.
