Description Federico Galassi 2007-09-11 19:15:13 UTC
I submitted to online w3c validator a page (xhtml 1.0 transitional)
with nested <form> tags and it reported nothing about that.
Now, i may be wrong but it looks like nested forms are not
allowed. Certainly, firefox didn't work properly with them and i had hard time
to track this problem down.

I had the same problem, nested html forms not reported as validation errors. In Mac Safari 3.1.2 they sort of worked but not quite and I too had a hard time tracking down the problem.
