It shouldn't exhibit such behaviour.

You didn't provide a URL, so I constructed a test case based on your
description of the problem:
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://dorward.me.uk/tmp/type-test-case.html

The validator reports no problems with it.

Perhaps there is something else about the context of your code that is
triggering the error? Without seeing the document it is impossible to
say for sure.

(I read the mailing list. Please address responses there and do not CC
me. Thanks)
