It is understandable that people, however familiar with the HTML  
languages, think they have found a bug when they stumble upon a  
strange case. That's why the validator's FAQ starts with David's  
humorous quip:

The community on this mailing-list works because experts are tolerant  
of the errors of less experienced users, and because of mutual  
respect and politeness in all discussions. I'd like to keep it this  
way, and ask everyone to limit themselves to useful, respectful and  
on topic discussions, in this thread and otherwise.
