In HTML this is allowed. Note, though, that Tidy silently corrects many
(real) errors like missing quote marks, etc., you cannot relaibly use it
to check whether a document conforms to the HTML/XHTML specifications.
See http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/appendix/notes.html#h-B.3.7 for why this
is allowed.
