            Bug ID: 24877
           Summary: menuitem
           Product: Nu Markup Checker
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: General
          Assignee: mike+validator@w3.org
          Reporter: master.skywalker.88@gmail.com
        QA Contact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org

In HTML validation, <menuitem> without a closing tag results in an error
"Unclosed element menuitem", while <menuitem /> syntax (in proper contexts) is
flagged as invalid ("Self-closing syntax (/>) used on a non-void HTML
element.") while the element is listed among void elements
(http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/syntax.html#void-elements).
As of now, menuitem is not supported by browsers, and using it in an HTML
documents results in the nesting of subsequent <menuitem>s.
This can be a bug to fix or (better) an occasion for filing a bug to the
HTML5's spec, to list <menuitem> as non-void in order to maintain backwards
compatibility.
