This was the case, a rouge bit of html was being put into the selector 
section (an "sp>") for some reason stopped khtml based browsers such as 
konqueror from processing the rest of the page (i've filed a bug) the 
page is back to being XHTML 1.0 strict

As now have I but It will never be possible to test in all browsers and 
versions, which is why we do need people to let us know about these 
problems. Which I would like to note are not a failing on our part in 
lack of doing something to fix the problem. We are not aware of the 
problem in the first place.
