the textareas are, i believe, stored in the db as <pre> and converted on 
the fly...

in the new code, i believe those should stay <pre> and we can use CSS to 
achieve the same scrolling effect...

and it will eliminate some of the XHTML validation warnings...

otherwise, it looks feasible...

how 'bout them comments, though? i think if you look through some 
articles, you'll see very few articles with clean HTML (if any)... they 
have never been subjected to our code standards review...
