Hello Dave,

I think I found what caused the beforementioned parsing error.

Following piece of (false) HTML code...

	<A NAME="test">test<A/>

... gets tidied to:

	<A NAME="test">test<A></A>

And this, of course, is still false, if not worse.

What basically happened: the user made a typo, he accidentally put "<A/>" 
instead of "</A>".

I am using the April 2000 version of Tidy on SuSE Linux 6.2 and 6.1.

Could someone please try to verify this? Am I doing something wrong or is 
this a bug in tidy?
