                    xharacter (/) me be present in void and foreign
                    element. It says on to behave then, but I didn't found

Comment:
On step 6, it says that the single U+002F SOLIDUS xharacter (/) me be present
in void and foreign element. It says on to behave then, but I didn't found any
specification on how to behave if it is found on other elements. Should it be
ignored or generate a parse error? I often see code like "<td />" or "<script
(...) />.
