.:| Right.  The way I operate is that I do *not* subvert semantic
.:| structure
.:| in order to try to make headlines "look" nice with existing CSS. And
.:| to
.:| think I would deliberately do so, is almost insulting.  I'm a front-

Darling Erika,

I did not intend any insult at all. I'll put this down to language barriers:
me not succeeding in getting my thoughts accross properly.

.:| I feel like focusing on a markup error in my work is redirecting
.:| focus
.:| from making a potentially useful global changes to the site.

I did not intend to draw your attention to markup errors as such - other
than perhaps solve the complaint you had re similarity of titles in the text
you presented.

Don't let my responses draw your focus away from the main things. I've said
it before: While I don't have time to work, my comments don't count ;)

Rock on.
