Hello,

I have been writing a test java servlet
which output the following:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN"> 
.
.
.
<form method="POST" ACTION="foo.cgi">
<br><input type=text name ="foo2"
<br><input type=text name ="foo" value ="100"
</form>
.
.

After using the validator
http://validator.w3.org/

It returned no errors..... Form elements were all on the 
same line..... Not what you would expect.... 

Well after looking at it for while i found it should 
look like this .....

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN"> 
.
.
.
<form method="POST" ACTION="foo.cgi">
<br><input type=text name ="foo2">
<br><input type=text name ="foo" value ="100">
</form>
.
.

I think the validator has a bug... keep up the good
work!
