Cemetery Puzzled by Coffin that Refuses to Stay Underground.

Pop-Up Windows Inventor Won't Stay Buried

Peter Klootzak
The Hague -  Peter Klootzak, the Dutch html developer and computer expert credited with scripting the earliest pop-up window codes we have all come to revile, was found violently murdered in his home 2 weeks ago. Authorities have no solid leads in the strange case, and the latest enigma surrounding Klootzak has served only to hamper their investigation.

Undertakers are puzzled and irritated by Klootzak's coffin that refuses to stay underground. After numerous attempts to inter the body, cemetery staff is at a loss.

Grounds manager Larrs Diggoort expressed his frustration. "We closed the box and buried it and we think we're rid of him, then he pops up somewhere else. We bury the bastard over here, but then he reappears over there. It's driving us all crazy."

Tim Berners-Lee, Klootzak's former co-worker at C.E.R.N. on the French-Swiss border west of Geneva, has no explanation for the mystery. "Frankly, I'm bewildered," he confesses. "I'm sure they'll be able to dispose of the casket eventually. But I wouldn't be surprised if his murderer will never be brought to justice. There were just too many people around in the world who wanted him to disappear."
