Hi all,

Apologies if this is a known... feature:

I've just tried to validate a page which had a missing end of tag
marker, and the validator service returns with NO errors. Here's the
suspect extract:

    <a href="http://validator.w3.org/check/referer">
      <img border=0 src="images/vh40" alt="Valid HTML 4.0!"

1. The missing ">" on the IMG tag.
2. The irony ;-)

and here's the DTD:

  <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

I spotted this whilst browsing my page with the NCSA Mosaic emulator at


ps. I'd appreciate it if you could copy mcarpenter@free.fr on any
responses to the ML since I'm not a subscriber. Thanks.
