Thanks for the feedback! On consulting with other staff, I have found
that we will just have to leave it there until we completely change our
site. Which can't happen soon enough to suit me.

Glad to hear it doesn't interfere with accessibility. And it's not the
only w3c issue that won't be addressed until we overhaul it all. (Groan)
As I said, it can't happen soon enough.

I can't imagine that the code would cause accessibility problems
(present or absent), but it does cause your site to fail w3c
