                    run an inline script. And if it does document.write(),
                    then the tokenizer will be in the wrong state when

Comment:
The instructions for '>' say to emit the tag and then switch the tokenizer
state. But emitting this tag may run an inline script. And if it does
document.write(), then the tokenizer will be in the wrong state when invoked
reentrantly.  So switch to data state first and then emit the token! --djf
