Endless errors about correct lines following an incorrect one.

1. With Anchor Tags:

When I have a line like:
<A>Missing closing tag.

Subsequent correct lines like;
<A>... </A>
Throw up more errors.


2. With mismatched Headings:

<H2>Headings Tags Erroneously of Different Levels</H3>
Correctly points out as:
Line 162, column 57: end tag for element "H3" which is not open.
Line 1382, column 6: end tag for "H2" omitted,
but its declaration does not permit this.

But many subsequent Validator errors:

Line 164, column 3: document type does not allow element "H3" here;
missing one of "APPLET", "OBJECT", "MAP", "IFRAME", "BUTTON" start-tag.
  <H3>Scope</H3>

Line 166, column 2: document type does not allow element "P" here;
missing one of "APPLET", "OBJECT", "MAP", "IFRAME", "BUTTON" start-tag.
  <P>Pointless body text in a paragraph.


So how about an option to pretend the error has been fixed after it is
first encountered?
