While using the validator for debugging a web site, I have found a  
bug in the HTML validator (or at least I think so). The error  
concerns the tag for closing a table. I had written </TABLE instead  
of </TABLE> on my web page, and this had a buggy behaviour on some  
navigators (like opera or safari, but not firefox). However, the page  
was validated as "Valid HTML 4.01 Transitional".

I have tried to simplify the buggy page (but if I simplify too much,  
the bug is no more there). The buggy web page (though validated) is  
available at the address
The corresponding correct page is

Best regards,

Patricia Bouyer.
