Don't
take this personally but I hate excessive markup for the purpose of applying
style such as a series of nested divs whose role is only to apply different
backgrounds to the same content. For example, the Onion Skinning technique
recently discussed at AListApart.com (<A
href="http://www.alistapart.com/articles/onionskin/">http://www.alistapart.com/articles/onionskin/)
and this code below smacks of the same thing. It is a maintenance nightmare and
difficult for others who work with you or after you to maintain. Why
not simply use the Title attribute to add more information?

<FONT face=Arial

and the program name wrapped in a <;span

so that doesn't work
