Dear Sirs,

We just validated the following source code

===
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/st
rict.dtd">

<html lang="en">
     <title>The current time</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-15">
<body>
     <h1>My helpful timestamp site</h1>
     <p>It is now </p>

     <hr>
     <p>Thanks for visiting my site.</p>
</body>
</html>
===

As you can see, the source code is missing the head tag. But still the 
validator.w3.org returns "This Page Is Valid HTML 4.01 Strict!".
We think that this is a bug or did we miss something?

Best regards,
Aniel Bhulai
