I can't use it as it messes with my 'stupid' server! I think most will try
and parse it as PHP and give a syntax error, it would probably work within a
purely HTML page.

I'm just playing with the home page on my new site to see if I can get it to
XHTML strict as an intellectual exercise.
looks like most of the error are sitting in my rather excessive meta head
block. :-)
