I'd like to suggest that an HTML parser such as you provide should only look
at what is between the <html> and </html> tags. HTML should not be
considered invalid if it is followed by a <script>...</script> - that should
be left for a script parser e.g. Javascript. More and more sites are tacking
on a segment of Javascript for various reasons (e.g. Geocities) - surely a
page with 100% valid HTML between the <html> and  </html> tags should pass.
