  • Oh dear.  Someone took that a little too literally (ha!) methinks?

    It's not even attractive HTML :(



  • Very nice, but where's the part where they print it out, place it on a wooden table, take a picture, scan it in, ... ?

    Actually, it's not even HTML.  That beast is XML with a custom DTD.


  • Thanks a lot. After clicking that I got an Adobe Reader wtf (the autoupdate that reboots the computer)

    I guess that's what I get for not looking too closely at it.

    If by "too closely" you mean "the first 5 characters" then yes.

    Ditch Adobe Acrobat, it's a bloated heap of unbelievably slow startup
    times and embedded flash and javascript security vulnerabilities, with
    the helpful addition of obnoxious phone-home policies.  Have a go
    with the small, fast, free replacement Foxit Reader; it may not have
    all the most advanced features of Acrobat (such as preventing you from
    printing or cut'n'pasting....) but it should be enough for most
    people's day-to-day needs.

     I grabbed Foxit Reader a few days ago after reading a comment about it in another WTF thread.  I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!

    I just paged through it really quickly, actually, and just looked at the overall structure of it without actually reading any of the text itself, if you can believe that.  And, based on the OP's post, I had no real reason not read the actual text to see whether or not it was HTML.

    ...Anyway. :P
