I noticed that just after I posted. The page has no comments indicating 
what tools generated it; however the w3c validator reports several 
invalid characters for both utf-8 and iso-8859-1. It's clean in 
Windows-1252. I can't be sure that it was authored using a Microsoft 
tool and subsequently 'sanitised' but the choice of character set 
strongly suggests that.

On June 1, 2001, Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, told the Chicago Sun-Times: "Linux is cancer."
Unsurprisingly that's incorrect; LINUX was released on August 25th 1991 and is therefore a Virgo.
