Only 30 HTML Style Tags and Not One More
All style tags after the first 30 style tags on an HTML page are not applied in Internet Explorer. Seriously? It’s been a limitation since IE 4.0 so maybe it’s not as bad as I think it is. Interesting number though. You’d think it would be 32 or 64 or 65767, not 30. Maybe it really is 32 but 2 are used internally. Who knows. Just be aware ......

HTPC - Windows Media PC – Step 1 – The Decision
For a long time we haven’t had any kind of paid television service at home. No cable, no satellite, nothing. We live in the St. Louis metro area so we get all the basic stuff over the air for free – all the major channels including PBS. That also means we don’t have any of the fancy gadgets – no HD receivers or monitors – and especially the DVR. One of those would be really handy around our house.
