Subject: Amaya 8.2-pre still accepts invalid XHTML as valid

Testing Amaya 8.2-pre on Win2k, with the file at the end of the message,
which validator.w3.org notes as

------------begin copy from validator.w3.org report------------------

This page is not Valid XHTML 1.1!
Below are the results of attempting to parse this document with an SGML

Line 12, column 12: character data is not allowed here 
  <blockquote>naked text in blockquote</blockquote>
Line 12, column 48: end tag for "blockquote" which is not finished
  <blockquote>naked text in blockquote</blockquote>
Line 13, column 27: character data is not allowed here 
  <ul><li>list-item text</li>naked text in list</ul>

------------end copy from validator.w3.org report------------------

I loaded the file (below) into Amaya 8.2-pre and checked the Views menu.
The "Show parsing errors" item is greyed-out, implying that it accepts this
as valid source, even though the two sets of naked text are invalid.

File now follows below cut-here line

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>

  <meta name="generator" content="amaya 8.1b, see http://www.w3.org/Amaya/"

<blockquote>naked text in blockquote</blockquote>
<ul><li>list-item text</li>naked text in list</ul>
