I do not want to be a trouble maker, but was that a "yes" or a "no" to using
valid markup (X)HTML according to W3c web standards? If yes, what DOCTYPE?
The only reason I ask is for consistency in development. May I suggest
structural XHTML 1.0 Transitional. As the New York Public Library online
Style Guide:

If "no" its going to be awfully hard to collaborate effectively.

by grace alone,
