           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

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
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
