Apparently [a quote by Tony Hoare](, the inventor of quicksort, speaking at the "1980 Turing Award Lecture":

"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult."

Caught that on the website. Can't say I'm a huge fan of Kompozer, and I'm hoping NVu eats less memory than having a full Seamonkey open just for the editor. The quote's a nice find.

(In other news, I can't believe NVu 1.0 is nearly ten years old and we still don't have a great replacement that tends to follow Hoare's "first method". A good Markdown editor might be as close as we've gotten.)
