I fix those as I find them. ;->
It's caused by my semi-adequate Python script that I use to HTMLise flat
files. It's not smart enough to give special treatment to .signature
blocks, alas -- but it's a whole lot better than nothing.
PerlHoo actually has nothing to do with that, by the way: It's just a
CGI that shows Yahoo-like hierarchicdal catalogue files generated from
comma-delimited files. (There's a separate CGI that can be used to
admin those catalogue files and any public contributions for them.)
