Probably the same reason you can put a napkin on your lap when
you eat and still find food dripped all over yourself.

<!-- 
<!-- 
<!-- I ask again, and I'll keep on asking, until someone gives some 
<!-- resemblance of an answer:
<!-- 
<!-- Why does the w3 validator not validate XHTML?
<!-- 
<!-- XHTML 1.0 is the current HTML standard. Shouldn't the
<!-- W3C validator take care of XHTML validation?
<!-- 
<!-- Why does the W3C validator say that non XHTML docs
<!-- are valid XHTML 1.0?
<!-- 
<!-- This page at the following URL is not XHTML:
<!-- 
<!--   <http://www.concinnity.se/bertilow/div/mad.html>
<!-- 
<!-- Nevertheless, W3C says:
<!-- 
<!--   "Congratulations, this document validates as XHTML 1.0 Strict!"
<!-- 
<!-- The validator actually only checks for XML well-formedness.
<!-- That is not validation.
<!-- 
<!-- If no answer can be given here, where should I ask?
<!-- 
<!-- Does anyone care? What is this list for?
