Steven and Murray are each entitled to their opinion.  On top of which,
as of this morning, the pages at the WSP site all start like so:

 <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"

and they validate.  And if they don't that's a high-update-rate bug

their design) they look damn good too, on a wide variety of browsers.
