Leads that wound up being lost causes, having nothing to do with the ARG. Also, for threads discussing what turned out to be hoaxes.

Um... that's stuff pertaining to standardized HTML layout and content.
Most new, well coded, websites will have that at the top of the document.

Um, W3 has nothing to do with this,

W3 stands for WWWC (world wide web consortium) @ http://www.w3.org/

They created HTML, CSS etc,

you use !DOCTYPES to tell your browser what version of XHTML or HTML you are using, so it can display it properly.
