I thought I covered these is comment 2.

I'm suggesting that the outer loop be run at most for 8 iterations per entry
into the outer loop. I'm suggesting that the inner loop be run at most for 3
iterations per entry into the inner loop. When the limit is hit, I'm suggesting
running the code after the loop without any more fancy action than that.

Is either of these a problem when the end tag matches the current element?
