XHTML no matter what

metropotam.ro changed their layout. Here's what XHTML obsession means (look after IE conditional comments).

<base href="http://metropotam.ro/" /><!--[if IE]></base><![endif]-->

I simply cannot see the reason for such a useless hack. Too bad they forgot to do the same thing for script tags. But I see the reason for the one below (again, look after IE conditional comments).

<li class="selected">
  <!--[if lte IE 6]><table><tr><td><![endif]-->
  <!--[if lte IE 6]></td></tr></table></a><![endif]-->

But then again. What's this?

<li><a href="..."><strong>Unde iesim</strong><!--[if gte IE 7]><!--></a><!--<![endif]-->

Regardless of the above nitpicking though, I like the new layout.
