As long as it was made clear to people placing those tags in their
code that it would only be used as a suggestion to the end user.

np. I personally have a Computer Engineering degree, program
Java/C++/Perl etc all day long for a living. But as far as
Greasemonkey is concerned, I'm reduced to a relative n00b because this
is all javascript/XUL/XPI/DOM and browser compatibilities. Don't
stress it. Computing is huge huge huge.

A problem I find is that I feel naked without debugging frameworks.
I'm looking to write those now. Anyone know of an online DOM map
