Er, pardon ?!

"c.It finds and reports an HTML error if one exits; and "
                          ^^^^^
>>>>>

But ..... "d. it does not report an HTML error where none exists." ..... and 
I am questioning whether that tenet is being compromised when "not valid" is 
being reported for documents via the Validator default "Fussy" mode that are in 
fact valid documents. Doesn't that imply that the Validator is somehow 
reporting errors?
