Account creation

If you are looking to certify this account or respond in any fashion, please do so to pabos ('o' not 'a') instead. Creating the pabos account was taking a long time and I noticed some typos in the summary box so I cancelled the submission before it had given any feedback, fixed some typos and resubmitted. I was then informed that pabos already existed and, not thinking much of it, I chose pabas instead. Later when checking the advogato homepage to see if I had appeared I noticed both of my accounts. My assumption, that the account submission would be transactional (ie. cancelling at any point prior to receiving confirmation would rollback the account submission), was obviously incorrect.

This long-winded explanation is just so you know I'm not just creating false identities to test the trust metric system or for any other nefarious purpose. :)

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
