Description Peter Fischer 2005-12-27 13:38:30 UTC
I have found that the W3C Markup Validator version 0.7.1 does not recognise a
meta tag error.

I conducted a test by inserting a meta tag into the header section:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Ladnguage" content="de">

The uploaded HTML document was validated despite it containing an obvious fault.

I am fully aware that this cannot be considered to be a fault related to HTML
validation itself. But it would be nice if W3C Markup Validator checks more
thoroughly - including meta data and valid language/country codes.
