You're right. I am not concerned about the top-level of

' *will* now be able to tell (after the system which generates 
<> is updated to Forrest-0.6)...' Currently 
the FOP web site shows this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" 
<META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<link type="text/css" href="skin/page.css" rel="stylesheet">

The <> site shows this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" 
<META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<meta content="Apache Forrest" name="Generator">
<meta name="Forrest-version" content="0.7-dev">
<meta name="Forrest-skin-name" content="pelt">
<title>Welcome to Apache Forrest</title>
<link type="text/css" href="skin/basic.css" rel="stylesheet">
<link media="screen" type="text/css" href="skin/screen.css" 
<link media="print" type="text/css" href="skin/print.css" 
<link type="text/css" href="skin/profile.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="skin/getBlank.js" language="javascript" 
type="text/javascript"></script><script src="skin/getMenu.js" 
language="javascript" type="text/javascript"></script><script 
src="skin/fontsize.js" language="javascript" 
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico">

Also, is there a reason why the first meta tag in all caps? Wouldn't 
that violate xhtml rules, which, I believe specify all tags should be 
lowercase (I realize it says HTML 4.01 Transitional... or are we 
fishing for a PATCH? ;-))?
