One of the most valuable things I learned while using WP: KEEP YOUR CODING

NOTHING can screw up your lovely work faster than a stray, unwanted code. The
"good housekeeping" habits I acquired using WP (though my natural
anal-retentive, borderline compulsive-obsessive personality MAY have something
to do with that, too :-> ) have helped me avoid a lot of problems over the
years, especially when creating help systems where a wrong or stay code can
REALLY screw things up!
