Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

There was a story on CNN today titled Secret Service protects expectant duck with accompanying pictures.  Now, aside from the fluff nature of the story, it seems appalling to me that the Secret Service could put up a sign, and CNN could present a picture of it, without anybody seeming to notice the rather obvious misspelling of the word "Quiet" as "Quite".  It also looks like the word "Please" is spelled "Pleese", but that may just be the quality of the photo.

Sign with mistake

How many tourists see this?  How many government officials?  How many editors read the CNN piece?  They can't all miss it, or is literacy so totally lacking these days?

I am very intrigued, because IBM seems to have gotten the message that HTML rendering in the client is inadequate given the many SPRs that are marked as fixed in the Fix List db, but the early reports I have seen in the Gold forums, the Partner forum and elsewhere are much more mixed.  As we obviously specialize in HTML generation and consumption, I have a deep interest in how Notes handles this, but not the way you think.  We have lots of customers who want to generate better HTML and MIME for e-mails and other content, but can't because the Notes client renders it so badly, and I would like to be able to tell them "it's all better", but I'd also like to be right.  So, any experience yet? Any feedback, positive or negative?
