Tidy infinite loop

tidy goes into an infinite loop, and consumes all available memory,
given the following input:

<html>
<title>Tidy bombs</title>
<body>
<span class=<ArticleBody">
<p>Inside a span.</p>
</span>
</body>
</html>

I use tidy to automatically convert external HTML pages to XML for
reformatting, so please don't suggest I just fix the (obviously wrong)
span tag.  

Thanks,
