<!-- Becky you should wait until release to put this in. What if someone doesn't follow standards? -OPJ -->
<!-- Why, I'm adhering to standards, and I would think you are, too. -->
<!-- To be safe? Oh, forget it. --OPJ -->

<!-- Is there a reason why everything was in screaming capitol letters? I fixed them to lowercase. OPJ -->
<!-- I find it's easier to find tags if I use uppercase letters. -->
<!-- If you upgraded to a modern html editor, there is color tagging of tags.
Oh, but I forgot, you are a purist! -->

<!-- Are you sure this is what it is supposed to say? It has no oomph! It doesn't even name the product. -BeckyLee -->
<!-- That's what Roger said in the brief. -OPJ-->
<!-- He said something "like Announcing An Innovative New Product" not that specifically. BLJ-->
<!-- I called Roger. He approved the following. I commented out the previous title. Remove it to signify you have acknowledged it, please. -->
<title>WinEstella: Innovation on the Internet</title>

<!-- Netscape or MSIE? No one pays any attention to the standards, and I'm not touching it. -BLJ -->

<!-- Oscar, did you even look at a color wheel? -->
<!-- What, the green? -->
<!-- Yes, the green. It's horrendous! -->

<!-- It's not that bad. Besides, They wanted to be very traditional, with a sudden burst of electricity that is subtle. -->
<!-- Talk about your headaches! It's awful. Can't we at least pick a color with more substance and fewer headaches? -->
<!-- It's the color of the text on the packaging. -->
<!-- What twit approved that? -->
<!-- Who do you think? -->

<!-- Font tags, Becky Lee? *sigh* -->
<!-- Yes font tags. Not all of us have Communicator 4.5: especially our future clients. -->
<!-- Shows how little you know! It's a beta, and it doesn't do style sheets.
And ... VERDANA? Come on! -->
<!-- I like Verdana. It's readable. It was designed for the screen. -->
<!-- I'm not helping Bill Gates take over the 'net. The next thing you know they'll want us to work on PCs! -->
<!-- For gods sake, Oscar, grow up. I cascaded the fonts. People don't have to get the font. -->
<!-- I don't have to like it. -->

<!-- Sure, cut the guts out of my style sheets. -->

<!-- Thank you. -->

A great philosopher once said "Innovation is a rare flower that must tended with the fear it may one day disappear.
<!-- Gag! -->
<!-- Let me guess? Roger? -->
<!-- How did you know? -->
<!-- We can't seriously release this! -->
<!-- Wanna bet? -->

<!-- No. -->

<!-- I know, I know. But hey, what would we know? -->
<!-- I did like your comment at the end of alpha feedback. Hee. No human alive would ever want such a thing ... -->
<!-- I call them as I see them. :) -->
<!-- We shouldn't use the P tag. -->

<!-- Why not? It's handy. It's standard! It formats itself! -->
<!-- It breaks font tags sometimes. -->
<!-- Oh come on! -->
<!-- It does. -->
<!-- I believe you. I just think it stinks. -->


<!-- I thought you didn't like All Caps. -->
<!-- For 24 hours, I'll live. -->
<!-- It's tomorrow. Where's the verbiage? -->
<!-- Heck! It's tomorrow's tomorrow. I'm betting we don't get it 'til Monday. -->
<!-- We're launching Monday! -->
<!-- Your point is? -->
<!-- I am not working this weekend. -->
<!-- Mmm. Hmmm. -->
<!-- I'm not. They can fire my butt first.-->

<!-- Well. Well. Well. I just got phone mail from Roger. A 5 p.m. meeting on a Friday? I bet you dinner at Luigi's that the launch is off. -->
<!-- I'll take that bet. I bet they are going to require us to work through the weekend. -->
<!-- Pessimist, aren't ya? -->
<!-- I'm hoping for my options, they don't release that POS app, but my experience has been that if possible, and even when impossible, I will get screwed. -->

Oscar owes me dinner.

This Vignette was inspired by one of the templates for the application we're building. It had more comments than content, and not a little nagging.
