Validating
Example page:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Strict//EN" 
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<title>Test page</title>
</head>
<body>
<table width="50%">
<tr><td width="25%">Test</td></tr>
<tr><td width="25%">Test2</td></tr>
<tr><td width="25%">Test3</td></tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

When that is run through the validator, you first get an error on the 
<table width="50%"> line, but no other lines.  After you fix that, you 
get an error on the first <tr> line, and no other.

Is this the intended behavior?  It proves to be quite annoying when 
fixing a page with multiple errors like those.
