           Summary: missing <head> not caught for html 4.01
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2

I attempted to validate code that looked like the following
<doctype 4.01>
<html>

    <title>
  </head>
  <body>
    ...
  </body>
</html>

and it validated. When I changed to xhtml1.0, it raised an error that there was
no head element.
