           Summary: Nu validator wrongly stamps <command> in the <head> as
                    invalid

        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: General
        AssignedTo: mike+validator@w3.org
        ReportedBy: xn--mlform-iua@xn--mlform-iua.no

Spec says that the "Metadata content" category is one of 3 categories for the
<command> element and that <command> is allowed "Where metadata content is
expected."

And HTML5 clearly lists <command> together wtih the <meta> element etc:
  http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/content-models.html#metadata-content

Further more IE10, Firefox 12, Opera 12 and Safari 5.1.7 all places the
<command> in the <head>

However, the validator stamps <command> in the head as a bug.
