Hi Abyss,

I have created 3 pages :
http://www.my-industry.net/testhtml1.php
It's a HTML 4.01 valid page. Look at the tags : <META>, <LINK> and the
first <A>

http://www.my-industry.net/testhtml2.php
I have changed the tags with <META />, etc...
The page is not HTML 4.01 valid !!! But it's XHTML 1.0 (transitional)
valid.
I note that the alone tags <IMG /> and <BR /> are correct.

http://www.my-industry.net/testhtml3.php
I have closed the tags <META></META>, etc...
The page is not HTML 4.01 valid : The V3C validator don't accept the </META> and </LINK> tags.
But the <A></A> is correct !
The page is XHTML 1.0 (transitional) valid.

Well, I am suprised of the differences between the traitment of the
<META>, <LINK>, <A> tags vs <IMG /> or <BR />.

An idea ?
