Noori Al-Maliki: best goalkeeper 2008

Al-Baghdadya TV journalist Montathar Al-Zidi threw a pair of shoes at President Georges W. Bush at a press conference in Baghdad today. The aljazeera.net readers have made about 5000 comments on the news on the web site, mostly approving of what the journalist did.

I did not post a comment on the article, but I would have approved of Montathar's action had I commented. However, on a second thought I tend to pity Georges W. Bush for what he got himself into after years of random destruction.

On Thursday 25 September 2008, a coworker noticed that the cisco.com web site was not rendering correctly:

On closer inspection, I noticed that all the "t" letters were removed from the HTML document. As you can see on the shot above, the style sheet did not load for instance because the statements "stylesheet" and "text/css" lost their t's.

I'm speculating that someone in the web development team decided to "clean up" the pages from tab characters and wanted to ran something like:

$ sed 's/\t//g'

.. but ended up forgetting to quote the "t" or maybe, influenced by web scripting languages, ended up double quoting it.
