Not detected error

Hello,

Recently, I had an error on a webpage :

<A HREF="01.html"<B>Klik hier om te beginnen !</B></A>

After "01.html" should have been a closing ' > ' ...

Some people reported me the link did not work, some reported me there was no link at all.

I just discovered the error, but before uploading the correction, I tried out your handy validation - which I use quite often - and I was surprised it didn't report that error at all !
It reports :
 Line 29, column 63: there is no attribute "BGPROPERTIES"
which is an error I'm aware of, and is way above the line containing the error I mentioned before.

I thaught It might be useful to report this to you.

Happy Newyear !


Marnix.
