Microsoft Sometimes, the sheer size of a company like Microsoft can make it quite hard to see and realise just how large and profitable such a company can really be. In these kinds of situations, there's nothing like a clear graph to make all those pretty numbers tangible. Up to a point.

Addendum - was just taking a closer peek, get a load of this ****.

<tr id="85f268c8-1465-11df-9a01-002264c15ace" msg="msg" mad="44|0|8CC76896CAB7390||" ><td class="Chk" name="msgChkCell" unselectable="on"><input type="checkbox" name="msgChk" title="Select message"/></td>

What's wrong with that? ID's cannot start with numbers, the following attributes - msg, mad, unselectable - do NOT EVEN EXIST in HTML, those a pure made up gibberish. They have NOTHING on th eID to make it part of a set or to identify itself as unique meaning they are likely pulling the unique information from one of it's parent elements making the javascript ten times more complex than need be... there is NO reason to ever put NAME on a TD since that's NOT even a valid property of TD, shall I go on?

They don't even know enough HTML to be MAKING websites in the first damned place! How the **** do these people get and keep their jobs, are the suits really THAT ignorant, or do the people writing this crap just have their noses so far into the brown they can see teeth and are deep-throating Ballmer's tonsils?

Microsoft’s ineptitude with HTML is legendary. That’s why I hold out zero hope for Office:Web and expect it to be nothing but a trojan horse for Silverlight.
