Incorrect(?) HTML that passes validation

I have a page ( http://www.yxf87.dial.pipex.com/_content001/BadHTML/AlmostOK.htm )
which passes the W3C HTML validation Service, but actually has a small
glitch that I shouldn't think would be regarded as correct.

in the <HEAD> element of the page there is a  tag with a missing > sign.  It
validates OK, but IE5 behaved strangely when I used the "Add to Favorites"
command which made me comb the page for the glitch that I eventually found.

I hope this helps.
