          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2

Invalid URIs are being allowed as values for href attributes in anchor tags
within XHTML document instances.

Eg this element:
<a href=" \ \ / / \\ \\ \\ ">blah</a>

was contained with an instance that "was successfully checked as XHTML 1.0
Transitional".

Header from the instance:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" dir="ltr" lang="en-US">
