| That's because they are validating according the HTML specification.
Because
| HTML is *not* designed to be extensible, the validator is doing the
right
| thing. You cannot really violate the HTML standard and then complain
that an
| HTML validator points that out.
| 
| If you want extensible markup, you should encourage your browser
vendor to
| support XML.

HTML is extensible, adding a new tag today does not delete the browser
of yesterday, you just don't get 100% expected results, DUH!  Lets face
it, HTML 3.2 won't work then until every browser is 3.2 compliant, and
there are many a browser that has not been updated in years now.
