Sear's Tower the tallest skyscraper? What's that about. By the way, I think it's against the rules to start a thread with only a link leading somewhere else. Perhaps you should post the content here.

And on the bottom of that page said "This page was last modified 20:21, 13 October 2005. "

I guess they forgot to change it to Taipei101... or maybe it counted floors?

or up to the antenna?

If they're going to only have one category called "skyscraper" it's gotta be official height wether you agree with it or not. But for that list they could have at least three categories, like this:

Skyscraper (Structural Height): Taipei 101 (509m)
Skyscraper (Total Height): Sears Tower (527m)
Skyscraper (Roof Height): Taipei 101 (449m)
Townsville Biggest city in the northern half of the great southern land.
