We are addressing this issue right now with the new UI code for SourceCast.
By requiring code validation against a DTD, all code that makes up the UI
for SourceCast (and sites running on the SourceCast platform) will have
fully-compliant HTML that is based on W3C standards. No more sloppy HTML, no
more sloppy coding. Everything will be nice and well-formed. This benefits
us in many many ways.

Look for this new UI code very soon. We are currently re-coding the refinst
module of SourceCast 1.0, which is to be used for all future instantiations.
