Feature Request - Published by... Comment

I think this has been covered before but I'd like to see the "<!-- Published by Fog Creek Software CityDesk..." comment moved so that it doesn't put IE into quirks mode.

Has it evver been officially documented what this comment is for? It looks like it contains a checksum.

I believe it allows the 'Edit With' menu item in IE to launch CityDesk at the correct page in your CD site.

Oh, I've not noticed that before! Thanks John.

I've never known this. Nor have I missed it...

For me, that feature is definitely not worth the trouble it has cost me! Anyway, it doesn't have to be at the top of the page then.

This came up a while back.  I totally agree with doing something to it so it doesn't put IE6 in quirks mode. 

Maybe it could go at the end of the page, or optionally turn it off.  I never knew it had a purpose.  I thought it was just for marketing purposes.

Maybe they could add a meta tag and stick it there
