Not only that: if you are running a production server, you will probably
want to log your error messages to a file (or syslog, or whatever),
instead of printing them. So 'display_errors' should be off. If that is
the case, you don't need to use @ anymore, because there will be no HTML
output even in case of problems. The advantage of this is that you can
use the exact same code on a development server (with display_errors =
on) and a production server.
