Hmm, mine is set to open in Tabs but opens a new window. Let me try 
something here. OK, got it fixed. I disabled and then re-enabled open in 
Tabs and it works now. Must have been a little corrosion there.

If I understand his aims it doesn't matter. He wants to follow html 
standards exactly, so my question is why not follow the html 5 standards 
that will replace the html 4.x standards.

Though I'll admit that I don't know if iCab currently gives "approval" 
smiles for html 5 pages.
