Joe Website, doing their own personal home page, or managing something as a
side-task to their "real job" as marketing wonk, probably won't.
However, let's not treat "Joe Website" as the trailer-trash of the markup
world. There are many, many of us, including I'd suspect the majority on
this list, that do make efforts to produce well-formed and valid (X)HTML
now. That group is still part of "Joe Website" -- there's no clear division
between 'too stupid to do anything else but use a tool' and the giant
intellect of the xml-deviant.
