Well I suggest you name names and show examples of compliant html 4.01 that 
doesn't show 100% of the intented content and doesn't at least resemble like 
what you intented.

Remember that the most important part of your webpages are to provide content.  
If your content is worth it, people will return regardless of little design

Possibly but those 30 semi common ones are almost always based on a common 
engine (like Geko, Mozilla, etc) and their quircks mode will horribly deform 
your pages thats why it's so important to set doctype and use coding that 
forces them to stick to standards compliant mode and not their quircks mode.

Your reference to worms is misplaced.  Obiviously your opinion differs from 
mine but that is no reason for insults or insinuations.
