Look what I found on the W3C's own web server:

http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/Graphics/PNG/Overview.html

<head><title>Portable Network Graphics</title>
<style><!--
body {bacground: white; color: black }
h1, h2, h3 {font-face: helvetica, arial, sans-serif }
--></head>
<body bgcolor="#ffffff">
<p><A HREF="../../"><IMG alt="W3C "
src="../../Icons/WWW/w3c_48x48"></A>
<A HREF="../"><IMG ALT="Graphics " 
SRC="../../Icons/WWW/graphics_48x48"></A>
<img alt="PNG" src="png_48">

They never closed the STYLE tag, and so MSIE does not close the head
... and from what I read from SGML, it is "sensible" to allow this
code, and that a parser should be able to recover from this, and the
HTML draft implies that such behavior should be.
