Summary: Saving a conversation has malformed HTML

Initial Comment:
There are some minor things I have noticed in the HTML
code of saved Gaim conversations, I'm guessing most
would not to too difficult to implement:

If I save a conversation, in the HTML is the code
'sml="AIM/ICQ"', which may be needed for Gaim logging,
but is unneeded for just viewing in a browser.  

If one person has a background color specified, but the
other does not, the whole document will show up in that
one color.

Some tags are uppercased, which goes against the w3
recommendation, also as a suggestion, perhaps using <br
/>, rather than just <br>, for future XHTML potential

Also, rather than respecifying the <body> tag over and
over again for background colors and whatnot, it would
be more appropriate to use <span> or <div>.  

There are unnessisary repeated use of font tags.  For

<FONT COLOR="#16569E" sml="AIM/ICQ"><B>Adam:</B></FONT>
<font face="Verdana"><font size="3"><font
color="#981919">depends on the

could be condensed into 

<font color="#16569E"><b>Adam:</b></font> <font
face="Verdana" size="3" color="#981919">depends on the
language</font><br />

Now, I know this may not be the way that AIM sends and
recieves messages, but it would be nice to at least
have conformant logs.

the saved file is ment to be exactly the same as what would
have been produced if you had been logging the conversation.

However, the saved file (I'm assuming) is meant to be viewed
in a web browswer, and :-p shows up like that anyway,
because its not used for AIM.  Just a thought for the future.

1)the smiley tag you complain about with the browser is the
way winaim does it, and was extended by us to handle the
yahoo and msn smilies as well. it is very necessary in order
to support different smileys in different protocols and
allow smiley themes. 

similarly, the body tags, and the duplicate font tags are
done in the style the protocols send currently, and while it
would be nice to condense them, its not a bug that we don't,
its a feature request.
