    No, actually. (Well, okay, failing to encode Unicode characters into character entities on a page which has no specified encoding is a bit of an encouragement for poorly written browsers to misrender, but since the charset in XHTML is Unicode that's more a browser rendering engine WTF than a problem with the page.)

    Obviously you're hoping that everyone will say "OMGWTFBBQ there's a comment there why didn't Alex just remove that part LOL!!!1!" but it isn't actually a WTF. Sometimes temporarily commenting things out in HTML is more useful than removing them entirely -- when there are temporary changes, for example. And it's valid XHTML, so this isn't a problem. Somehow I doubt that the extra 0.072 KB per page to leave that line in place are going to bankrupt Alex with hosting charges.

    Interesting analysis, though my point was the fact that the link had been removed. dhromed explained that, thank you.

    I think the problem is with the above line.  Is this a question?  R U the daily WTF?  I hope I'm not.
