VALIDITY:  No, we don't.  In 190:3 we mentioned a travel package to
Shangri-La but we didn't state its cost.

STYLE: I'm not sure if the radical differences in HTML and English
style between this rule and the others is unstylish or not.  It would,
perhaps, be characteristic of a site with multiple authors, but thus
far Fantasy Recreation Consulting has come across as the sort of Mom
and Pop outfit that'd have a web site done by either Mom or Pop, but
not both.

And presumably this is a continuation of one of the previously
mentioned web pages, but stylistically it belongs on its own web

A highly subjective -0.5.
