Some wrong HTML code validates correctly.

Hello.

Hopefully this is the right mailing list, in the feedback page it
said "If your page doesn't validate...", but the problem is that
the page should NOT validate. The whole discussion can be read here:

  http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=es&lr=&ie=UTF-8&threadm=mailman.1044810540.18789.python-list%40python.org&rnum=1&prev=/groups%3Fq%3Dgrzegorz%2Badam%2Bhankiewicz%2Bhtmlparser%2Bbug%26hl%3Des%26lr%3D%26ie%3DUTF-8%26sa%3DN%26tab%3Dwg

Basically, the following is an incorrect validation:

  http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://www.terra.es/personal7/gradha/test.html

According to http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/REC-html40-19980424, 3.2.2,
attributes have to be separated by spaces. They aren't, yet the
page is considered valid. Is this a bug in the validator?

PD: Please CC me your answers, I'm not subscribed.
