Definitely. I created a page with lists, used the Web Preview (how's
that for a buzzword) and validated the file using both the HTML and
CSS validators at, and we passed with flying colors.

I was going to see what other word processors did, but neither KWord
nor StarOffice would start for me. Darn. And of course, Microsoft
"HTML" export is half elements that aren't even in HTML, and were only
ever dreamed of in the feverish ravings of some poor Word coder. :-)

Well done.
