Could someone please tell me why there is now a div
tag wrapping my signature HTML?
Well, in the very general sense, it's there because
chromatic wrote a patch to put it there, and I approved
that patch. It's not likely that the site CSS will ever
do anything with it, but it is a hook which individuals
could use to change their personal view of the site.
I approved it because it did not make any change to the
way people in general see the site, and thus it seemed like
a pure win. Had it been a more significant change, prior
discussion might have seemed apropos.
As things stand, the change will either be made consistent,
or rolled back. At this point it already seems more trouble
than it is worth, so I'm inclined to favor the latter, though
perhaps someone will make a good case for keeping it.
