That's not really the point. The mistake could be on the first line. For  
example, lots of pages have whitespace before the XML Prolog or don't  
declare a namespace or insert some <meta> elements that are not "self  
closing." And whether or not we render half of the page, it would still be  
worse than in Internet Explorer. Not to speak of the differences in  
scripting and such.
