--- Comment #1 from Michael[tm] Smith <mike@w3.org> ---
Thanks for reporting this. It seems to be a bug in the legacy validator code,
because you're using http://validator.w3.org/ to check your document. I
recommend that you don't use that but instead use http://validator.w3.org/nu/

The code for the legacy validator at http://validator.w3.org/ is not code I
work on but as far as I can see it appears to be doing some pre-processing on
the input it sends to the HTML5 backend. The way to avoid that broken
preprocessing is to instead use the UI at http://validator.w3.org/nu/ which
sends the input to the same HTML5 backend but without doing any preprocessing.

I'll try to get this bug in the legacy validator fixed but I think it's likely
I'll do that simply by having the request redirected to
http://validator.w3.org/nu/ so that the preprocessing gets bypassed completely.
