Hi!

Thanks for the validator service, I really use it a lot!

But, I think I've found a bug in the validator regarding the <body> tag:
if the <body> tag misses the trailing > it is not detected!

To reproduce the error, click these links:

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://2onsdag.dk/index_wrong.php
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://2onsdag.dk/index_right.php

(and enable the Show Source checkbox).

(The above two documents only differs wrt the trailing > in the body tag.)

Best regards,

Peter Favrholdt
