Description Lee Carre 2006-01-31 02:35:02 UTC
when the closing > of a tag is missing it isn't reported (at least not for 
I had used "</table" by mistake, missing the ending >, but it wasn't flagged as 
an error, and the page passed validation

For XHTML if the Validator does not report it this is a known limitation as 
pointed out in the Validation results (look for the note about XML support); 
for HTML this is allowed and it would be wrong to report an error. We are 
working on adding warnings for such cases.
