Weird problem

Hello,

I spent some time reading the FAQs and trying to debug my page
and could find a reason why the validator rejects the following page:

http://modeemi.cs.tut.fi/~ams/uus/validator_error.html

I suspected that it might have been because of the usage of
<script></script> instead of <script/>, but after I fixed that,
the validator just picked another random point in the document
(the 'c' in 'type="text/css"' in fact) and gave the same error.

So is this in fact a bug in the validator?
Please keep me in the Cc: field in any replies.

hmm ... I just reran the validator with almost all the options
on and I noticed this in the parse tree portion:

...
    <TITLE>
       Axu's Homepage Version 3.0
    </TITLE>
      ATYPE CDATA text/javascript
      ASRC CDATA http://www.modeemi.cs.tut.fi/~ams/apu/default.js
    <SCRIPT>
       > <link rel="StyleSheet" type="text
    </SCRIPT>
     css" href="default.css" title="Default"/> 
      ATITLE CDATA Beige
      AHREF CDATA beige.css
      ATYPE CDATA text/css
      AREL CDATA Alternate StyleSheet
    <LINK>
    </LINK>
     > 
      ATITLE CDATA Blue
      AHREF CDATA blue.css
      ATYPE CDATA text/css
      AREL CDATA Alternate StyleSheet
    <LINK>
    </LINK>
...

So the parser is definately being thrown off at some point.
