It looks like everyone on the list got into a "who 'creates' HTML
argument"... I'm assuming that you were talking about using javascript
to generate content on the fly and insert it into a document.

If you stay away from the "innerHTML" attribute (which only works in
MSIE, so you're probably not using it) and instead use the methods
Document.createElement and node.add and node.insert, then you'll be fine.

Users of browsers like NN 4, MSIE 4, and some others might be left out
in the cold. My advice on that is to make sure that you are only using
javascript as added flavor, and to ensure that a non-javascript user can
still accomplish everything (even if it is a bit less convenient).

Sorry if I missed the point and you weren't asking about
javascript-generated markup. ;)
