Are you sure it is there? Please check again! Here is how the 
validator's source listing reads:

    1: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
    2: <html>
    3: <head>
    4: <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; 
charset=iso-8859-2">
    5: <title>Invalid HTML</title>
    6: </head>
    7: <body>
    8:
    9: <table border="1">
   10: 	<tr>
   11: 		<td>
   12: 			xxx
   13: 		</td>
   14: 	</tr
   15: </table>
   16:
   17: </body>
   18: </html>
