Yes, this is (usually) just sloppy coding of the adware javascript
and/or html, all too common these days. RW seems to have no control over
this content (but should!). As a guest on my page, these guys should be
on their best behavior, but typically manage to muck something up,
spoiling my otherwise error-free pages! ;o) Have they never heard of the
HTML specifications? :o(
Since the ads are changed periodically, you may see this and other
errors come and go.
