Can you send the sample input as an attachment?  When a DOCTYPE or HTML tag 
is included, the text gets chopped for some reason.

Those are legitimate warnings.  If you have an end tag within a <SCRIPT> 
element, you should escape it.  E.g.

<script type="text/javascript" language="Javascript>
   document.write( "<p>foo<\/p>" );

Note the <\/p>.

Also, in URLS, you should use the &amp; character entity to represent URL 
argument delimiters.  E.g.

<a href="/foo?a=arg1&amp;b=arg2">Foo</a>

take it easy,
