   Thanks, I fixed them (and a couple others with use of HTML Tidy).

There are still unescaped `<'s on lines 103 and 140.  I can't recall
how they are supposed to interact with <pre>; the W3C's validator just
gives a warning about them.

   You need to use https :) But well, I think people either already know
   that or use Firefox/Konqueror/etc. to do so.

Ah, I see: the message in italics is, in fact, referring to the other
certificates; I understood it to refer to the whole Savannah web site
under `https'.  Never mind, then, my absent-minded inattentiveness!

Anyway, thanks for the prompt response, and for the Savannah service!
