Hi, All,

Following is part of the HTML code from Google.
========================================================================
<html>
	<body bgcolor=#ffffff onload="document.gs.reset();" topmargin=3
marginheight=3>
		<table border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 width=100%>
		<tr>
			<form name="gs" method="GET" action="search">
				<td>d</td>
			</form>
		</tr>
		</table>

    <br>
    <br>
    Your search - <b>ahfljaldfa</b> - did not match any documents.  
    <br>
    <br>
    Suggestions:
    <ul>
	    <li>Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
	    <li>Try different keywords.
	    <li>Try more general keywords.
    </ul>
    <br clear=all>
  </body>
</html>
======================================================================

If I use Tidy to convert this HTML to XML, it always says "Error: discarding
unexpected </form>". However, when I remove the line <td>d</td> away, now it
could work fine. Is it a bug or something else?

Can somebody help?
