  Try

	http://www.exile.ru/permanent/clubs.php

against the validator.  Select character set windows-1251 (Cyrllic)
and HTML 4.01 Strict.  Check "show source"  The page will pass.
But that page ends with

1367: <div class='credits'>
1368:  <hr>
1369:  (c) "the eXile"&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Tel./fax:
1370:  +7 (095) 151-4670/88&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; E-mail:&nbsp;<a
class=footnotes
href="mailto:office@exile.ru">office@exile.ru</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<br>
1371:  (website-related issues: <a class=footnotes
href="mailto:webmaster@exile.ru">webmaster@exile.ru</a>)
1372: </div>

with an unclosed table and an unclosed body.  Netscape renders
the page as blank.  How did the validator miss that?
