	To me, "tag soup" means that tags are acted upon in isolation,
	rather than as delimiting nodes in a tree structure.  E.g.
	<b> sets a bold flag <i> turns it off:

	<b>....<i>....</b>....</i>

	is legal and produces an effect similar to:

	<b>.....<i>....</i></b><i>....</i>

	ought to produce (this is a common idiom in real
	life HTML).


	<b>....<i>....<b>....</b>....</i>.....</b>


	is as likely to produce:

	<b>....<i>....<b>....</b></i></b>......

	as what was intended (I've observed this with indenting).
