Description Geoffrey Sneddon 2009-10-23 09:37:55 UTC
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLICa> throws two parse errors at the "a", and, similarly, <!DOCTYPE html SYSTEMa> throws two parse errors at the "a".

To fix this:

Firstly, add a case for U+0022 and U+0027 in after DOCTYPE public/system keyword states, which says: "Parse error. Reconsume the current character in the before DOCTYPE public/system identifier state."

Secondly, remove the "Parse error." from the Anything else case in both the after DOCTYPE public/system keyword states.
