That's actually why this came up -- for the first time I AM looking at
the generated HTML a lot.  I'm building a frontend for a set of DBs we
use (for various reasons none of the pre-built ones I could find would
work for us), and I'm spending a fair amount of time trying to figure
out whether I messed up the code, or the output just doesn't display
as I expected.  I've never done anything quite this complex, and have
therefore never needed to look at the output html a lot.  I've also
just gotten tired of having my output completely unreadable... I'd
like to have this project done right, and to me that means the source
and the output should both be reasonably easy to parse, in addition to
other things (paying a lot more attention to security than I usually
do, for instance...).
