According to the HTML 3.2 spec[1], a minimal HTML 3.2 document would be:

     <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN">
     <TITLE>A study of population dynamics</TITLE>

The w3 validator, however, rejects this document with the following error:

     Error  Line 2, Column 45: "HTML" not finished but document ended.

     <TITLE>A study of population dynamics</TITLE>

Is this behavior by design?

Best regards,

Trevor Caira
