Something for section 1.8.

The STYLE and SCRIPT elements should be closed at the first occurrence 
of '</' according to section 6.2 of the HTML 4.01 specification. This is 
not compatible with current implementations (Mozilla[2], Opera, IE, et 
cetera) and especially not compatible with the internet.

I think we should overwrite this statement of HTML 4.01 in section 
1.8[3] of the web applications specification.
