Hehe, not a problem.  I would have been a little surprised if I hadn't
heard any feed back on the patches.  You folks at BP do Perl web app
development for a living (and I don't) so will always welcome any
constructive feedback as an opportunity to learn.

I will be happy go along with whatever Tom decides makes sense.  If he
wants me to back the div/span one out, I'll do that.  If he has
suggestions on ways those could both be XHTML compliant and not disturb
rendering, I can pursue that.  I'm flexible, just let me know.

Standards compliance is a good thing, but not if it gets in the way of
doing something that Just Makes Sense (like the autocomplete="off"
