    I am not a happy cleo. Based on the discussions of CSS and good web design, I just ran the W3 validator on my website. NOT a good idea. All of the public pages did just fine, but somehow it activated all of the PHP code in the administrative pages and wiped my whole MySQL database! It's OK, because I did a table dump on Tuesday so I only lost a couple of journal entries, but still - if any of you have setups like mine, definitely backup your data before trying to validate!

    damn, that's got to suck. But I'd be really curious to know exactly while it made a mess of things. Did it try and *fix* stuff and delete files it didn't recognize?
