You are wrong, you need to escape the "</", and this is the most
frequently asked question about the validator.  It's not a bug;
please see http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-validator/
as it's been covered there many times.  (In fact, I was sure just
from reading your subject line that you would be reporting the
same supposed "bug" as everyone else...)
