Using the comment tag at the beginning is read by infoseek
as EOF(end of file). Plus if infoseek did change its tactics it
would not read more than 256 characters because your comment tag is
so huge usiing the same words over and over again.

THis can also make it seem you are trying to spam the index and will
knock you lower or off %100 infoseek.

As I have done in the past I'd advise you to call infoseek as well.

They will answer the phone "Go Network Infoseek. How may I help you or direct your call."

Others here havesaid int eh past that the comment tag does not = EOF
but try telling that to the infoseek help desk.

Your site does look awsome though!

Maybe I should have your shock wave guru do my site!
