And why highest and not longest or tallest?

There's no such thing as the longest website. If you create a page that's x pixels long, I can always add an image (or something else) and now it's x+h pixels long, h>0.

Aah, but there is a web site that is even taller: deepskyfrontier.com/

Unfortunately, I am not able to resolve the address right now. But it's referenced on your own Carnival of Web Extremes, Phillip, which is actually where I think I saw it first: blogoscoped.com/forum/62264.ht ...

Wouldn't it be "tallest"? The highest would be aboard the ISS or some satellite.

I always wondered wether satellites have IP addresses. What would be the ping-times? Transmission speed? And are they running Apache or IIS?

[put at-character here]Ionut:
Firefox doesn't support websites longer than 18.939583 kilometers, so the website says at the buttom. (Apperantely, u didn't scroll down enough), and they say:
If you can come up with fixes or an even higher element, whose formatting is broadly supported, email info at worlds-highest-website.com. Most likely, there’s some reward. And otherwise, if it’s found, it’ll be used ;)
