A Quick Update to Simple Twitter

A lot of people use my Simple Twitter Feed written in JavaScript (for some
reason).  Well, today I pushed out a quick update that should fix all the woes users have given me
in the past.

The code should now be valid XHTML strict, and I know longer use innerHTML
for each list element.  Instead, I’ve moved from adding the list elements via innerHTML to DOM
Manipulation (appendChild).  I’m not sure exactly what the benefits of this are, but I’m sure they
exist.

As the previous HTML code seems to have been broken, this may cause some rendering
errors for a few websites, but all in all it should work better than it has previously.

I’m
not writing out a whole changelog, I’m just going ahead and saying that some changes were made – and
hopefully Simple Twitter should work a lot easier for everyone using it.
