i agree that they suck against our current standards...

i disagree that we should leave them for now... assuming we go to 
XHTML... if it's just scripting that updates them, why not do it?

if we stay with HTML for this first pass, then i am fine with leaving 

but let's not get in the habit of just doing things halfway...

or rather, if we go XHTML, let's *make* the time and run them through 
tidy... i'd rather see it late and correct than on time and wrong...
