I never looked at the terms and conditions because, as I mentioned before, it
is a case of time being wasted for pennies. I thought about the issues with
code modification it when I wrote the previous message. Google are not too
stringent for the most part. You'd have to press your own ads for quite a
helluva time before having your AdSense account suspended (maybe this has
changed due to frauds and lawsuits [1]) and the worst they can do, other
than impose banishment, is penalise the Web site by modifying Google's index
(to fully exclude or lower the value by depleting from the backlinks

Best wishes,
