I agree entirely of course. That's why have altered things
accordingly in my user style:

    a [href] { text-decoration: underline }

and always log into my user account, which I can do on any
computer. The same goes for fonts, as I prefer to view
things in a serif font, though at the uni I usually have
to settle for Arial Unicode MS, which at least is better
than boxes.

a dialect with an army and a navy.  Which means that
Afrikaans is now a dialect of Xhosa.--John Cowan
