4.1.1: How is this to be tested?

Proposed Change:

Provide information

Response from Working Group:

To make this requirement easier to understand, we have reworded SC 4.1.1 to
clarify that it must be possible to parse content without the need for user
agent repair. The revised SC reads as follows:

4.1.1 Content implemented using markup languages has elements with complete
start and end tags, except as allowed by their specifications, and are
nested according to their specifications. (Level A)

Note: Start and end tags that are missing a critical character in their
formation, such as a closing angle bracket or a mismatched attribute value
quote are not complete.

Information about how to test this criterion is available in Understanding
Response from GSW:
My question is more about *how* this will be tested - not *what* to test. Is
there a tool out there that can test this (without testing validity). How
does the WG intend people to test this? How will the WG test this during the
implementation review?
