Again, I think the mark of a true expert is knowing how much is just enough. It usually means having a good understanding of the issues, which all too often is lacking. Think of the "user" that decided that allowing <i>This <b>is a</i> hack</b> would be a good thing. Trivial to implement, and with huge ramifications that I'm sure the "user" didn't understand. > You know we have a group of pragmatic Web developers > ready to review our ideas, we just have to invite them > in.
