You might wish to adjust the tone of your emails, which are archived 
publicly. Not only is it a *free* service which you are complaining 
about, it looks extra foolish when you find out that you are wrong.

As you cannot have a heading (such as <h6>) *inside* a paragraph, the 
start tag for the <h6> element implicitly closes the preceding (open) 
<p> element.

So <p><h6>foo</h6></p> is equivalent to <p></p><h6>foo</h6></p> and the 
second </p> doesn't match any open element.
