I believe I have encountered a missing check in the validation.

If an <INPUT> or <TEXTAREA> is not enclosed in a <FORM> then this should
produce an HTML error. Currently the checker does not seem to catch these
mistakes.

While the PC will generally display these orphaned form fields (those not
hidden) a Mac will not most often display them. Without a proper check it is
hard to catch these orphans.

Thanks for such a great service to the public.

Webworks,
Joe
