They should have used the
NOSCRIPT element (which they are using for their counter, but not for this message :S).
One last point is that if they did al these things correct (I think companies should do what they are good at and hire people for things they don't get) there are still people (who's numbers are increasing) who have popups blocked, like myself.
I you are not using a decent browsers, the code comes from O.
anne: i never maximize my browser (i have it set to 800px width) and with this particular entry your site displays a huge amount of whitespace underneath the blockquote.
And finally, that's mixing of presentation and content.
Is it some big company? (I couldn't get through, popups blocked). Tell them they just lost many customers.
Unfortunately, even pages of the government are badly written.
