Hmmm... it works for me now, too. I re-downloaded the page using wget 
and I see no more null characters.

I had sent an e-mail to the webmaster right about that time but I never 
got a reply. Maybe the page was changed in response to my e-mail (or 
perhaps someone else's - someone who noticed before I did).

Well, thanks for your advice. Just think: we might have helped out the W3C!

    I'm actually hoping that [Linux] won't take more than 25 or 30%
    of the market. If Linux owned 95% of the market it would be
    ... as sick [as Windows]. There is some need for competition.
