Hi all.

FYI: "Lindau / Bodensee" means the city of Lindau near the Bodensee, a lake
between Germany and Switzerland (and I believe France, but don't quote me at
that).

> Line 210, column 61: end tag for "SPAN" omitted, but its declaration does
not permit this (explain...).

The small red arrow points just at the "/". The error draws quite a bunch of
follow-up errors (at least 8).
The validated webpage can be found at
http://www.iuw-darmstadt.de/phpBB2/groupcp.php?g=7399, if you mind looking
at it.

I think this is a bug, or at least a very strange feature I don't unterstand
:-)

Kind regards, Sascha Carlin
