I agree Marco. Among technically minded i see this issue failing often 
on the W3C Validator list where the Validator attempts to explain why 
a certain line of code does not meet a given (X)HTML standard. There 
are often involved, sometimes heated exchanges about wording of the 
auto responder. Any programmer knows error messages seldom tell you 
what is wrong, but often merely help with where to look. The 
auto-responder for newbies[TM] would be a far greater challenge by an 
order of magnitude. BEWARE Mike - There be dragons here... and you 
are crunchy and taste nice with tomato sauce.
