I found a bug in the HTML Validator you might want to fix.

It tells you the page is valid when it actually has an error.

I noticed this when I added something new to one of my web documents 
then tried to validate it, found it to be fine.  Then checked with the 
TIDY extension for Firefox and found the problem.  It's fixed now in the 
document, but the validator should have picked it up.

Here's an example of the problem:


attribute='value"'

You can see the problem, it should either be attribute='value' or 
attribute="value"  but when you look at the above, there is a double 
quote and single quote together on the right.  That should be invalid, 
but the validator at validator.w3.org said it was valid.
