    So but, I find heavenly bliss when starring at beautiful markup. Is there something wrong with me?

    Not at all. I refactor code just for the symmetry and beauty of it all.

    There's another word for it -- professionalism.

    To get serious, um, just for a moment, well formed markup has all of these advantages and I'm speaking very, broadly i.e. coding as well since often it's embedded in markup:

    Easier to debug/trace
    Best standards compliancy
    Validation to W3C and other standards
    Portability <--- well formed RE-USABLE code/markup = life is good
    Security <--- if you don't grasp this, imagine, say, tracking a hack in 10,000+ lines of source not following any of the above

    But most importantly, it means one very important thing to me:



    ps: To DIY or newbies -- only need to really focus on the first two, the rest come after screwing up badly which is inevitable. So a solid two hand golf clap for 960design.
