--- Comment #1 from Michael[tm] Smith <mike@w3.org> ---
The start tag and end tag for the html element can be omitted.
See http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/semantics.html#the-html-element

The start tags and end tags for the body and head elements can be omitted also,
so the following is also a valid full document:

  <!DOCTYPE html>
    <p>Hello world</p>
