RE: Should validity be P1 or P2? (was RE: summary of resolutions from last 2 days)

Inneke described what Opera did with the code snippet I sent earlier.
Since Opera is inaccessible to JAWS users, I would be grateful for a
description of how Opera treats the full, validated example that I
attached to the message after Inneke pointed out that the <th> element
wasn't closed properly in the original snippet.

(I'm not trying to argue anything here-- I just don't have a way to find
out on my own how Opera treats the page.)

Hello David

You wrote:
>The end tag for <th> is optional in HTML 4.x, so it can be valid.

I always use xhtml 1.1 and serve it also as application/xhtml+xml (I
really use it for UAs like Opera and Firefox and for IE etc. I serve it
as
text/html)  Opera did not render the table from the mail, mentioned
mismatched tag line x, character x and showed the code of the page
instead of the table.
