i'm having trouble parsing this page, and it seems that so does tidy.
 
the trouble is that the search part of the page is in a table, and in a
form, but the tags are in the following order
<table...>
<td>
<form....>
<input...>
<input...>
<input..>
</td>
some more text & input tags
<td>
</form>
<td>
 
this is, of course, the wrong structure (/td before /form). tidy (and my
parser) turn it into
<table>
<td>
<from>
<input...>
<input...>
<input...>
</form>
</td>
the rest of the stuff (without a </form>)
 
well, the trouble here that this output, while legal, isn't a functional
page (you can't search with it).
 
so, what do you think?
 
thanks for your help,
ittay
