The Da Vinci Code - more fiction than it would appear?

It turns out a lot of people think that what Dan Brown presents as facts and history is, well, not really founded on fact as firmly as he'd have his readers believe. I guess I'll have to do some research on my own now...

To be honest, I did wonder at the way the book starts: there is a note named "Facts", which lists a couple of details about some of the events and organizations mentioned in the book. I wonder if this is actually the author's way of subtly suggesting that the rest of his writings may be opinions or simply fiction :)
