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
some more text & input tags
this is, of course, the wrong structure (/td before /form). tidy (and my
parser) turn it into
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,
