There are some strange constructs that are technically valid under SGML;
is this one of them?

When the DOCTYPE is manually overriden as XHMTL 1.0 Transitional, the
validator complains about the missing '>', as well as all the expected
problems with the <meta> elements.

Are we dealing with a validator bug or an actual difference between SGML and
XML?
